Summary

This is a scan I did of a LG PG 1500 LED projector using the Einscan-S from shining 3d. I used the scan to then make a projector mount that I would use with the 3M wall stickers used for holding brooms and such. I used 1/4" pipe and 1/2" pipe for the supports. The middle piece is the 1/4" pipe and the two bottom pieces are 1/2" pipe. I used bondo and metal spray paint to finish off the top adapter since that will be visible to all. I used that color paint and layered bondo to make it look like a really bad looking concrete/metal casting. I treat it as art but I could have gone the smooth route and made it look like injected plastic.

The main goal here was to not only get my projector up without drilling holes in the wall but to also test the 3D scanner and use it in CAD to make an adapter. It worked perfectly even though NX has difficulty grabbing onto stl faceted files. Solidworks does a better job.

I did a further review here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59wMiFklv30&lc=z13uujhiwly4src5d04cjfs51mbvflja044

but that was for scanning a dodge dakota 2004 dashboard.

All in all I really like the scanner. It has proven very effective in creating a digital library of all of my stuff, such as my Weller WES51. I will be scanning more in the future so that one day I can make custom boxes for all.

Resolution:

Infill:

Hexagonal 20%


Notes:

Make sure to do at least 4 perimeters since these will be load bearing parts and don't go too fast. Some of the holes will probably need to be tooled out to M3 screws but you can just force them in.

Post-Printing

I used bondo on top for a textured finish. The other pieces I experimented with hot glue in the infill and resin on the outside for strength.

How I Designed This

I designed this using NX and made it so that it had angular characters to a point and then fluid at the top. Also I added holes for cables to come out in case you happen to use still cables. The holes though might need to be revised.
