Parsley has received a couple of major improvements over the last three months. Now I’d like to share them with you.
If you have never heard of Parsley, here’s a short intro
Parsley is an open source initiative to build a low-cost 3D scanner. With Parsley you can create your own 3D models easily by scanning them from your desktop.
The following features were implemented in the last couple of months together with Matthias Plasch
- Plugins Parsley supports plugins through its plugin architecture. This includes algorithms, patterns and the like.
- Tracking Parsley supports scanning of complete objects through tracking the objects position while changing views.
- Pattern Designer Parsley received its own pattern designer to let you customize your calibration patterns visually.
- Calibration The calibration process has been simplified and live visual feedback on errors and recognition results has been added.
- Settings The settings are immediately applied and saved to disk when a parameter changes.
- Rapid Development The developer is freed from creating its own user interfaces for algorithms. Parsley interferes adjustable parameters from the meta-data of the class and generates a unified user interface.
Here is what it looks like.

Unfortunately Parsley does not offer a simple installer yet. If you need installation instructions leave a comment. This increases pressure to update the documentation :)
