Open DAVID-hardware project

Hello,

I am seriously considering building my scanner this Christmass vacation... I have been looking through the whole forum for more recent or alternative designs to this one, with no luck... too much information. Is this open-hard project up to date, or do you suggest me any more recent design?

Thanks,

Arturo

Hello Arturo,
Yes, this forum gives a lot of different informations spread over a lot of different threads. And I think, if I look onto other forums, e.g. the Arduino forum, this is quite normal. All is in progress and news are coming in everyday.

To give you hints to the right info source(s) we need some more details what you intend to do with a 3D scanner. E.g. scanning with or without the calibration corner. Size of the objects, accuracy, etc.

Hi Walter, thanks for your answer. I was incredibly impressed by the "Scanning without panels" tutorial in the wiki (http://www.david-laserscanner.com/wiki/scanning_without_panels_by_hal), since my father was a sculptor, and I'd love to scan his works. The quality of the scan in that tutorial is awesome! and that's where I'd like to go (both in quality and mostly in object size, some should be bigger). Following this I was led to your thread http://www.david-laserscanner.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2421 discussing the electronics and arduino set-up, but I am still confused on how to mount the motor rotary system (even after reading this post http://www.david-laserscanner.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1827&start=15, with the backslash system and all...). Anyway, it seems I am in for a lot of fun reading first! Thanks!
