I won the Top Functional Design in the 2016 Pinshape Awards! Thanks to all who voted! http://bit.ly/2j62lb0
You spoke, I listened!
V2.0beta is now available for download!
The base is now in 4 separate parts that press fit together and the tolerancing on other press fit parts has been improved.
The iPhone Cradle is now also Height Adjustable to allow for further tweakablility and allow scanning of smaller items
(If you have already printed all the parts but just want to upgrade the main chassis, that will be no problem as the design is backward compatible)
This 3D printed design will turn your iPhone into a cheap portable 3D scanner utilising the AWESOME Autodesk Remake software
The idea is that you use your phones onboard camera to take the pictures while the turn table rotates. This is acheived by using the headphones that were supplied new in the box
The volume controllers trigger the camera remotely, taking 50 pictures for every complete rotation of the turntable.
