hey, do you think i would need a stronger motor if i wanted to scan
larger and a bit heavier objects than those you showed? i intend to scan
mainly SLR Cameras, for example the Nikon D600. And i also wanted to
ask if the wiring is possible on a normal circuit board rather than the
thanks for all the info. And thanks for the work on this project. Its pretty sweet, I had the whole thing working in 45 min. Seems like the pots that come with the servos are 100k. I'll increase my quality, on the David SLS scanner, I just used the default. I'll post my settings when I get home. Also for the servo, I removed the pot in the servo, removed the pin to allow it to spin 360 degrees, and I soldered an 10k resister between the wires in place of the pot.

New firmware, Version 0.3, released!
This is an instruction to build an automated Aruino Turntable
1) 1 Arduino Uno board
2) 1 10k Resistor
3) 1 10k Potentiometer
4) 1 Push button
6) 1 Servo Motor
7) The printed parts
8) A David-Laserscanner: thingiverse.com/thing:36989
I) Remove the 180Â° lock from the servo as shown in: feh.osu.edu/Design-Project/References/servo.html
II) Put all parts together as shown in the wiring diagram.
III) Load the firmware (the -ino file) on the board
Open your David-Laserscanner and activate the option: Seetings > Advanced Settings > Communication > COM > Enabled.
This function allows the Arduino board to send commands via the USB connection to the David-Laserscanner.
The turntable has 3 modes:
Mode 0) Nothing happens :)
Mode 1) If you push the button, the turntable starts to rotate. Now you can adjust the angle of the rotation with the potentionmeter. No scans will be made in this mode.
Mode 2) Once you are satisfied with the rotation angle, push the button again. The table will stop to rotate for 5 seconds. Move away and let the table do its work.
It will rotate, then send a signal to the David scanner. The scanner will make a picutre of the object and save the file. If the scanner is finished, the table makes the next move aso.
