High quality scans

Postby m0jo » Thu Sep 20, 2012 12:54 pm

I'm starting a new project. to build a scanner that is:


makes no compromise on quality

capable of scanning large objects like cars and small aircraft

so far I've found these components and would like your opinion: ... sb-30.aspx

USB 3.2MP 60FPS camera

or: USB 2.2MP 150FPS

what would be better: the higher FPS of higher resoluion?

I've requested a full price list from their company and received:
a quotationfor around 800 usd

Also I've read that using a projector gives the highest resulition so for that I'm thinking of using: ... review.htm

If it turns our for me a laser would be better I'm thinking of:

But how can I make a nice line from that without using a wineglass

David does not support the Point Grey USB 3.0 windows 64bit drivers.
I have point greys, but cannot use them with David.
Some people have said that they used them with the 32 bit drivers.
