Summary

This is a laser mount that fits the Adafruit laser modules (tested with https://www.adafruit.com/products/1057)
Upper laser mount derived from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:11572 and modified to fit Adafruit laser.
Lower base is designed to attach to 20 mm T-slot extrusion, like this one: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:10261
I used this to build a simple laser scanner.
I chose to print the holes for the dowel a bit small and drill them to size. The mount fits the laser without modification.

A writeup on the scanner project is available here:

Hi everyone:

Thanks for your interest. The Android app was something I wrote to automate spinning the turntable and taking the photos. I did it because I had a spare phone with a good camera and a IOIO interface board already. It would be MUCH simpler to do it with a Raspberry Pi since the whole thing could be done with a shell script. You could even do the image processing on there with the Python script I posted on my blog. It was only cheaper to do it with the phone because I already happened to have both pieces of hardware.

An IOIO board costs $40. The Pi + camera is only a bit more than that and would be much less work than the Android approach.

Which android app are you using??? Is it available on play store???

Which App do you use? to scan the 3d Model. And how great works this app???
