Hey Instructables community!
EASY Kinect 3D Scanner!
This instructable is very easy as long as you are patient and follow my instructions in the video. Also, I explain how to correct and fix your image for a nice clean print on a 3D printer such as the UP. The best part, the project is free as long as you have a kinect.
When I first tried to accomplish this, I spent DAYS trying to figure out how to install the software and run it correctly. So, I created this instructable to easily show someone how to install the software correctly without error.
Also, I am 14 years old saving up money for a 3D printer. Please vote for me to help make my dream come true. God bless. Did you use this instructable in your classroom?

I have a Davinvi 3d printer, I am 15 years old and wanting to sell it.
It's in great condition and works great, but I want to upgrade. Shoot me an email at joshuajacoby99 gmail. Reply 1 year ago. You can??
Reply 3 years ago. I hear you can use the XBox One Kinect but that you may need an additional adapter. I have heard nothing about it being better than using the version though. My membership is current The video is probably blocked in several countries because of the background music being copyrighted. Some suggestions from the video I'm a IT techniciandon't worry about doing the graphics driver update through device manager, just checking the nvidia website would override the first update check anyway.
In most cases the driver already installed on most people's computers would do the job even if it's out of date.
That's just some suggestions anyway which would cut down the time needed to accomplish the project : I will soon be completing this project myself so when I get around to it I will post my experiences in the comments. For some reason i cannot access it from Brazil Reply 4 years ago. To perform a full body scan in under 30 seconds, it would be great if someone who's reading this blog could to write an API to simultaneously scan with two Kv2W scanners using as an example Artec Studio 9, or MS 3D builder.
One thing I must say about 3D builder that I don 't like is that they limit the 3D printers you can print to. Any comments to the community that you would like to share I'm sure I'll be appreciated. Excellent instructions.
Microsoft Wants Kinect to Die, But This Fan Has a Hack to Keep It Alive

If you're trying to split open the original cable and add a power connection and probably a new USB3 plugI'd recommend against that, because the shielding will very likely be damaged and you'll get even more USB3 issues.
If you really want to get by without the adapter box, open the Kinect itself and solder to the internal power connections. Skip to content. Dismiss Join GitHub today GitHub is home to over 40 million developers working together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together.

From 3D scanning to motion sensing, there's a tonne of cool stuff you can do with a Kinect, but so far there are no instructables on how to wire the Kinect for USB.
I don't know what is supposed to come in the bundle, but I bought a Kinect second hand, and got only the device. No adapters, cables or anything. So this is a quick instructable on how to cut of the original plug and wire a USB on, to use with a computer.
Did you use this instructable in your classroom? Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson. Cut the Kinect and power supply close to the plug, but cut the USB with plenty of cable trailing out of the male plug. Make sure there is no exposed wire that will cause a short. Now you can heat shrink it or try to, with its 3-way junction. Step 4: Heat shrink the whole bunch to make it neat. Maybe yours already is, but my job was disgustingly messy, and I needed to cover it up.
Step 5: Follow the other instructable on this site, to make use of your new equipment! If you want to continue using it with an Xbox, you can splice the wires in without cutting of the Xbox plug. If you do so, you'll need to add in a switch couple of switches at the junctions between the USB's and Xbox's green and white wires. This is because when unused, the USB plug causes interference on the data green and white wires. Tip 2 months ago. Thanks for this simple to follow instructable: very helpful.
I have made a 3D printable case for the connection to keep it nice and tidy and safe from breakage. Question 9 months ago. Question 11 months ago. Answer 11 months ago. Awesome instructable! Thank you, it saved me time and money. Mine didn't turn out looking pretty, but it works really well!
What good timing, I just got a kinect in the mail today to use for 3d printing and it has this silly plug. I found a 12v 4A power supply. Reply 1 year ago. As mentioned the device will only pull the amperage required to work but with all electronics protect it from over voltage by installing an inline fuse 2A should be fine to protect the device.
Reply 5 years ago on Introduction. Reply 4 years ago. Need a little clarification on this point. You say that using a 12V 4A power source will work. I would have thought that would put the Kinect at risk. Inversely, I have a 12V 1.

I have an Xbox One with Kinect 2. I want to know if I can connect it to my PC, and if so, how to do it? A hack might be available one day, but I would not recommend going that way.
Although you'll invalidate your warranty on the Kinect you should still be able to use it with the XBone afterwards.
I connected them to a barrel connector to fit a spare laptop PSU. The "distinct" hackers forgot to explain that signal how to. Fortunately I have about 4 projects to work till connecting the sensor and Microsoft did something interesting. It manufactured and sells the adapter for the sensor separately.

This works for me with Windows 8.Microsoft's Kinect is a versatile multimedia input device that can be used as a 3D scanner. Originally it was launched as an extension to the Xbox game console. We describe how to connect a Kinect to your Windows PC. Nintendo's Wii game console introduced motion control to games via wireless remote controls.
Later Microsoft added motion control to its XBox game console as well. They even did not need remote controls. Instead they used a dedicated camera system, called Kinect, that could do the job without remotes The Kinect happened to be a versatile device that, connected to your Windows computer, offers an array of new functions.
The most striking one is 3D scanning in a user friendly way. That is very interesting for a device with a second hand street price of USD 25! The plethora of new functions requires a lot of exploring and experimenting which can start as soon as your Kinect has been connected to your Windows computer.
And that, surprisingly, is sometimes a frustrating exercise. We will try to help you out. Did you use this instructable in your classroom?

It is cheap, the software runs on Windows 7 and you will find many free resources on the internet.
Uninstall anything that starts with the word "Kinect". Have a fresh restart of your system afterwards. Installing the Kinect driver became a mess in our case. However, by trial and error, we found a way out. Afterwards you will find the Kinect Studio program and a Developer Toolkit Browser plus some documents in your Windows task menu.
Wait for at least five minutes. In the meantime you could look at Device management on your Windows machine to see what is happening. After a while, you will receive a Device Ready message.Skip to main content of results for "kinect adapter". Amazon's Choice for kinect adapter. Get it as soon as Tue, May 5.
