Hi, please tell me how to modify the servo ds3115mg a firmware job. I can not find the specification for him that used to change the parameters

int microsdelay = 50; // Delay between each microstep. Bigger = slower
float steps_0_deg = 1000.0; // Microseconds for starting position
float steps_360_deg = 1210.0; // Microseconds for full 360 rotation

myservo.writeMicroseconds (1000);

could you please share me you firmware?i can not see it on your webste,the firmware may be lost.thanks and waitting for your help!
my email address is : [email protected]

you can find the firmware on another of Bernhard's things: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:52850

good luck

VirtuCube 3D-Scanner

need your help to solve that problem
"could not establish connection to turntable.please try to reconnect turntable hardware and enable plugin"
my david v4.5.0 i use the uno r3 .intalled your firmware Leo 3-2 already but i can not connection the turtable to david.alway get the error.i've tried to choose Adtolist A and some thing as show in your photo.do you know what is the problem and how can fix it
by the way ,i can not installed the firmware Leo 3-3

Hi Virtu!
i assembled the turntable with a servo like your, i have only a issue, everything is working, except for a thing: david starts, made the first scan, turntable doesn't turn, made the second scan and turntable works correctly until the end, in shape fusion the first and second scans are the same, so i miss the last one of 360°.

any ideas?
Thanks Nico

I am having the same issues as Jerome113. I also confirmed the settings and scoured the virtumake forum but did not find a solution to this weird behavior.

After assembling all the pieces, flashing the ino, setting the advanced settings, and wiring as noted my turntable will rotate completely around when plugged in and not stop.

It will not react or connect to David


I have here a rs-22 ymb servo lying, I can use it with an Arduino? and with the same firmware?

I've tried to print the base for this three times now with different support structure options and it always comes out too brittle or fails completely. Has anyone printed these successfully themselves or is it impossible without using Shapeways?

I've had the same issues. It seems these parts were never design with home printing in mind since every attempt of mine has failed no matter the printing/support options or the software I use to generate the gcode.


I upladed a version of the hoder that has a flat base. Please give it a try. It should print on a homeprinter as well.


I appreciate that, but all 3 objects have rounded edges on top & bottom which disallows printing a brim so they all end up warping.

Hey there, I would absolutely love you if you could help me with 2 things,

  • Do you have a video showing how to assemble the table and use the arduino and configure it? Can this be possible for electronics newbies?

  • Also Can I use any simple projector for this? and from where do I get the pattern to project?

I've been watching your videos the whole week, And I really want to build the table and the projector.

Any help is well appreciated!

I should have stated that I have hooked it up with this configuration and it doesn't seem to interface with the software. The platform will turn 360 when I plug it in and then not increment with each scan.. I am I missing a setting, is David not seeing the arduino, or is it a wiring issue. Sorry for the questions I'm excited to get this thing working and built, any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Have you ever been able to use the turntable as descibed for David scanner?

Hi! We get you trough this :)

Here is some discussion regarding the setup of David: http://www.virtumake.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=8http://www.virtumake.com/forum...

Furthermore, I uploaded a new picture that shows the "Advanced Settings" of David Laserscanner to make the turntable run.

Thank you for answering my last question. I have all the parts printed, and I have uploaded the code to an Arduino UNO. The only other question I have is relative to buttonpin, the input for pin 2? I assumed 5v, ground, and pin 10 for the servo, but what is the input for pin 2?

You do not need to wire pin 2. Just use 5v, ground and pun 10 as you wrote above.

looks very interesting and well done! what i ask myself is: how much power does the servo have? will it turn bigger and more heavy parts up to 5kg?

The Servo is powered by the 5Volts of the Arduino. I don't think it can turn heavy objects. You should use a stepper with its own power supply instead.

alright, thanks!

Do you know if this interacts well with the newest version of David Laserscanner 3.9.0beta2

Haven't tried the Beta, but I am confident that it is compatible.

Are the SLS results better than laser scanning, or is it just a quicker process?

I think its a quicker and more comfortable process.

Looks like this might make my life a little simpler!
