Just put the object at the turntable and press start :)

better Design,
easier to operate,
more fun!

I appreciate that, but all 3 objects have rounded edges on top & bottom which disallows printing a brim so they all end up warping.
Hi!

I upladed a version of the hoder that has a flat base. Please give it a try. It should print on a homeprinter as well.

Best,

I've had the same issues. It seems these parts were never design with home printing in mind since every attempt of mine has failed no matter the printing/support options or the software I use to generate the gcode.

I've tried to print the base for this three times now with different support structure options and it always comes out too brittle or fails completely. Has anyone printed these successfully themselves or is it impossible without using Shapeways?

Hey there, I would absolutely love you if you could help me with 2 things,

- Do you have a video showing how to assemble the table and use the arduino and configure it? Can this be possible for electronics newbies?

- Also Can I use any simple projector for this? and from where do I get the pattern to project?

I've been watching your videos the whole week, And I really want to build the table and the projector.

Any help is well appreciated!
I should have stated that I have hooked it up with this configuration and it doesn't seem to interface with the software. The platform will turn 360 when I plug it in and then not increment with each scan.. I am I missing a setting, is David not seeing the arduino, or is it a wiring issue. Sorry for the questions I'm excited to get this thing working and built, any help would be appreciated, thanks!
Hi! We get you trough this :)

Here is some discussion regarding the setup of David: virtumake.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=8

Furthermore, I uploaded a new picture that shows the "Advanced Settings" of David Laserscanner to make the turntable run.
Thank you for answering my last question. I have all the parts printed, and I have uploaded the code to an Arduino UNO. The only other question I have is relative to buttonpin, the input for pin 2? I assumed 5v, ground, and pin 10 for the servo, but what is the input for pin 2?
You do not need to wire pin 2. Just use 5v, ground and pun 10 as you wrote above.
looks very interesting and well done! what i ask myself is: how much power does the servo have? will it turn bigger and more heavy parts up to 5kg?
The Servo is powered by the 5Volts of the Arduino. I don't think it can turn heavy objects. You should use a stepper with its own power supply instead.
alright, thanks!
Do you know if this interacts well with the newest version of David Laserscanner 3.9.0beta2
Haven't tried the Beta, but I am confident that it is compatible.
Are the SLS results better than laser scanning, or is it just a quicker process?
I think its a quicker and more comfortable process.
Looks like this might make my life a little simpler!
