To learn more about the ScanX 3D Scanner project watch the promotional video below.
“I started this project a year ago because of my need for an affordable 3d scanner for my 3d printing and prototyping business. After weeks of searching for a solution that fit my needs I decided to embark on a journey of testing and creating my own 3d scanner. After months of design and testing different hardware and writing my own program to run the scanner I realized that I had created a very affordable and simplistic prototype that provides detailed results and could be used at the entry level. “
“Since then I have honed the design into a powerful tool for my shop, which has been an extremely valuable asset ever since. This unit is driven by a Raspberry pi 3b with a Raspi motor Hat and 3.5” touchscreen TFT. This unit has WIFI connectivity which allows you to effortlessly and wirelessly send your scans directly to your PC. I also created a simplistic GUI for the scanner which is user friendly and elegant. “
The ScanX 3D Scanner is built tough and with quality hardware say it’s creators and is housed in a casing made from biodegradable PLA (polylactic-acid) derived from corn.
