If you have come across the Raspberry Pi scanner before you might be interested to know that a second version has now been developed providing tutorials, 3D printing files and schematic’s as well as all the Python code you will need to create your very own Raspberry Pi scanner. But do be warned before you start this is a complex build and requires some 3D printing as well as connecting a variety of Raspberry Pi components together including the official Pi camera, mini PC and power supply.
“This is a complex build. It requires a fair amount of 3D printing knowledge, knowing how to connect electric and electronic components, some soldering skills and a lot of patience and skillfulness. I’m giving the plans for free and I cannot bear any responsibilities and for any loses or injuries, as well as no warranty that it will work. “
“This is the building of a REVOLUTION-ary new 3D Scanner and 360° product photography. It started as a hobby project and evolved into a full fledged product over the past 3 years. This is where I try to improve it by building better lighting and putting better lenses on the cameras. I figured that better uniform lighting all around the rig together with decent lenses might be a winning combination for scanning rig. If my reasoning is correct, I might actually be done with this. If you have any questions and inquiries regarding the project, please shoot an email and I’ll do my best to come back to you as soon as possible. Thanks for your interest!”
