David laser scanner rotating system.

David laser scanner rotating system.

Postby Papertosolids » Sun Jul 04, 2010 11:12 pm

This is a simple design for a rotating devise for the David-laser scanner. It does not use stepper motors, gear boxes or any other type of electrical devise to rotate the laser. The devise has two lasers that are adjustable up and down to maintain the correct laser angle. The lasers scan from the top and the bottom. The laser mount stand is adjustable in and out for different size parts and calibration sheets.

To purchase a full set of drawing, parts list, part numbers, where to buy the parts and a complete set of assembly instructions for $19.95(US), visit http://papertosolids.com/Store/products ... wings.html.

Hi,
You should make a guessing game of the nice construction, theme:
„What do you think, what kind of driving mechanics have I used?“ :wink:

Hi,
Sorry for making this look like a guessing game, the rotating devise is controlled by hydraulics capable of variable rotating speeds of 36 degrees in 25 minutes to 36 degrees in 30 seconds. There are no motors or gear boxes to vibrate and there are no hydraulic motors or pumps. The laser line moves at a steady speed without vibration.

Can you please tell us :
- can all the parts be bought or some have to be built/machined ?
- what is the total cost of the parts ?
- what is the estimated time to build/assemble ?
Thank you
Francois

If you go to http://papertosolids.com and create a account to log. After logging in at the top of the page there is a Tab named David Rotating Laser Parts List. Click on that Tab then on David Rotating Laser Parts List Download. This is the Vendor and parts List; you can download this for free. I can’t tell you for sure just how much it will cost you in parts because I bought most of the items at wholesale cost. There are 10 Items that have to be made by a machine shop.
I am now in the process of designing and building one much smaller, that will mount on top of a camera tri-pod. This Model want have as many parts to make. But this is a few weeks off, because of my available time.
