I'm very much interested in the final solution since I have laying around a Kinect which I especially bought for 3D scanning :-)
I tried to use it under Windows, but I'm not happy with the results.

Under Windows, you could use Skanect. It is very good software. Or ReconstructMe. But these softwares are not free,
Under Linux (my goal as I'd like to use a Raspberry Pi), I could not find any 3D scanning software, so I'm trying to do it by myself.
Kinect is a very good scanning platform, it is just lacking some Linux sources (now OpenNi is difficult to find / install). I don't want to install a Windows10 just to get the latest KinectFusion software (and I'm not a Visual Studio fan)

Anyhow, I would be interested to get your solution when finished.
I also would prefer a standalone solution with the RPi but I'm not so skilled that I could write it myself. I guess the major problem is to get useful libraries for Linux as they are/were available for windows.
As far as I remember I made my first tests with an older version of ReconstructMe and this one was available for free. But as I said, the results were not really good and I did no further investigations.
You probably have seen this already:

Reconstruct me is the best, recently I believe it has been free for a while, you just need to get the correct SDK's
