The Fast Avatar Capture Software allows you to scan and create a 3D model of yourself using a Kinect v1 sensor. The capture process requires you to stand at four 90 degree angles to the sensor for about 15 seconds each time. The 3D model can be constructed in approximately 2 minutes once the scanning is completed.
