VirtuStick extends the range of your mobile 3D-scanner. Two servos and a joystick position the scanner precisely.
Now you can scan large objects, or things out of the reach of your handheld scanner.

1) Print Tray 1 and Tray 2
2) Weld the two parts of the "Scanner Holder" together. I use an old soldering iron and some filament to weld these parts together.
3) Fit the left holder and the left srew in the scanner holder. Weld the scre in the holder.
4) Do the same with the right holder and the right screw
5) Screw the servos in the scanner holder
6) Attach the X Axis to the top servo
7) Balance the scanner holder with the weight
8) Print Tray 3 and weld the Handle and the Joystick holder together
9) Glue the Scanner Holder, the Handle, the Controller holder and the Arm rest on the aluminum rod.
10) Wire the Arduino and upload the firmware
