Existing 3D rendering open source software along with Raspberry Pi technology can be used to create an affordable method and workflow for time efficient, accurate and quality scans for 3D printing. The emergence of technology spurs a technological community working to progress in a collaborative effort. This brings a potential to the possibility of efficient and economical solutions to emerging problems, in this case, the ability to render three dimensional scans using free and open source software as well as Raspberry Pi technology. The focus of this paper will be divided into three different aspects including the background needed to understand the role that photogrammetry plays, the development of a software using Python along with open source software, and finally its collaboration with Raspberry Pi using networking techniques to create the final 3D render. As with all technology, the possibility for improvement not only exists but will be discussed.
