3D scanner

As had a bit of fun trying to reverse engineer some parts for a ghost hunter (I am a not a believer!) I thought it would be fun to sort out a 3D scanner. So I have decided to make one. It might not be very good initially but I am sure I'll learn.

The idea is pretty simple really place an object in the field of view of the camera and then using vertical lasers slice the outline, capturing the laser profile/lines, turn the object and create a wire frame. I am sure it might be a tad noisy initially.

The parts all printed last night. after the parts all turned up from various places. Will be fun putting it together to test this w/e probably whilst operating during the GQRP Summer Sizzler will add a photo at the time.
