This is my first cut of a 3D turntable scanner that can be printed on a cupcake/reprap. It is by no means finished but it is a start.
It has a turntable driven by a motor ( a size I had in my \'bits\' box ) and mounts for a camera and the laser line drawer.
It needs heaps more work but I thought I\'d put the first cut into the thingiverse and see what people came up with
The blender file of the complete device is included in the tar gzip file. I have not uploaded all the stl files individually , grab the zip if you want them all.
To build it you will need a 608 bearing , 5mm (or 3/8 ) rod , some M4-20 bolts , a motor , webcam , laser pointer and possibly a PHD in quantum physics :P
There is no software yet but this
looks like a good start; combined with an arduino to index the wheel and some scripting this could be a automatic scanner.
Has not been test printed but all the parts seem to skein ok.
