Automated desktop structured-light rig for use with David-Laserscanner SLS software.

Scan volume: 2" cubed - 1' cubed
Scan time: 15 seconds per face
Accuracy: +/- 0.005"
Cost of materials: Under $1,000


You need a sheet metal cutter (plasma or mill) and a brake to bend the pre-cut sheet metal.

We 3D-printed the "Turntable.stl" file on a CubeX.

The circuit diagram, Arduino code and electronic specs are found here... http://www.virtumake.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=8

Thanks Bernhard (aka Virtumake)!

could you please share your firmware?my email address is :[email protected]
thanks anyway!!!

could you post a dxf?
it would be helpful also the positioning setup point, where place the pieces on the base

Really nice. Which projector and webcam are you using?

....looks like was exported in CM so scale factor of 10 seems to work

I've just tried to print these stl and imported objects are way too small in my slicer, Have tried importing into a couple of different ones and same problem. If I scale from inches to mm they are wayyyy too big. What scale and units were these exported as? thanks

Not yet, David-Laserscanner is the best I could find, it's $400.

It's fantastic. Is it possible to use a free software?

That's a good point! I'll work with that and see what happens.

If you print the plate of the turntable with white filament and add some structure, the scanner software can use even the turntable to align the scans. It is much faster and accurate.

Very nice project. I like the idea with the turntable :)
