FLMScan Prerequisites

  • Software Prerequisistes
  • Hardware Prerequisistes
    • Webcam: you can use any webcam. Using a high resolution webcam with 1600 x 1200 pixels is strongly recommended.
    • Line Laser: you can use any line laser. You might consider buying a focusable line laser if you planto scan objects in different distances. You might consider buying a green laser, if you plan to scan red objects.
    • Arduino Microcontroller: you can use any Arduino microcontroller like the Arduino Duemilanove or Arduino Mini.
    • Stepper Motor: you can use any stepper motor.
    • Rotating Object Table: you can use any flat board. It may be either rectangular or circular.
    • Calibration board: you can use any flat board.
    • Housing: it is recommended to mount the 3D scanner hardware in a housing. Handling a laser is dangerous - you might harm your eyes. Mounting the 3D scanner hardware in a box will protect you from the laser beam and will also lead to better 3D scanning results.
