3D Scanner – Mini Update “Freakin Lasers!”

Small update on the laser scanner project. I’ve got 100% more lasers!

Laser in Scanner

Here's a picture of the laser line generator inside the scanner.

Didn’t think I could get so excited about lasers, but this little contraption for marking lines on walls is pretty cool.

All that’s left to do now is build the electronics to control the stepper motor that rotates the platform and mount the webcam and line generator inside the scanner body.
I also may do a little bit of spray painting and probably re-write a fairly hefty chunk of the control software to make it a bit more user firendly.
