Topic: Arduino Laser Scanner? (Read 2720 times) previous topic - next topic


i was wondering if there was a way to set up a laser scanner with arduino to scan simple objects and from there possibly print on a 3d printer. i dont have any knowledge on laser scanners so i f you guys have any idea on how to build on that would be even more great

Thank You


Similarly I don't have any experience with this, but I would probably start with some kind of laser range finder (Let's Make Robots has a post about it - http://letsmakerobots.com/node/2651 - dunno how useful it is) then go from there, maybe with a motor controlled slow moving turntable made from a lazy susan or something. The rangefinder could move up and down, slowly working its way up the item you are scanning.


Someone posted one a while ago based on a record turntable, IIRC.
