Hello, I built an Atlas 3d scanner from FFD prints using the thingiverse files found here: [url]https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1280901[/url]
After changing the lasers to blue ones, I'm getting much cleaner scans that are approaching the 1/4 mm resolution that was promised. (BTW blue lasers also allow it to see black items without dusting them with white powder) Here is a 12mm laser mount that can be used for both left and right sides of the printed version.: [url] https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2453715 [/url] (Read the description in the thingiverse before posting feedback as editing or a bench grinder will be in order.)
It works pretty good. I think the hardware and software are solid
but the enclosure leaves much room for improvement. I think that my trouble (double misaligned shell like everyone else) has to do with alignment and calibration. Alignment of the printed enclosure is an exercise in futility. Maybe if it were printed on an SLA printer instead of FFD, the mating surfaces would be smoother and be able to move things like lasers and camera mounts without such jumpiness. (There is a new alignment feature in v1.25 of the software that fixes alignment and double shell problems. Kudos to Uriah on the new version) Not that I could design one at all much less any better than Uriah Liggett. Thanks BTW for giving us this great open source project.
I printed my parts at 100% solid for added strength. You probably won't need to do that.
