Wow!
This is exactly what I have been looking for! I was looking for something to look for thermal leaks around my doors and windows. I was wondering when the enclosue and PCB might be ready for purchase? I can't wait to build this project! Thank You very much!

As I am currently out of money (student life is expensive  :) ), I cant test the new version of the case (with modified servo mount) and the newly created PCB at the moment :-(
If you don't want to wait 1-2 months until i become "rich", you have 2 posibilities:
I give you the order links for both and a instruction on how to put everything together (should be a lot more easier than the current building process on the website), but there may be the possible risk that the PCB is not working correct (the case should be fine anyway).
Second, you send me the material and shipping costs in advantage. I order the components for you, put everything together here and try if it works. If I find any mistakes, i will solve them and if that is not possible immediately, I order a second revision of the pcb/case and pay it on my own. At the end, I sent the whole package to your home adress.

Maxbot,

I have already ordered most of the parts needed to build the Thermocam. I also wanted the fun of building it myself so, I guess just send me the links for the PCB and the case and I will order them. I will take the risk on the PCB not being correct.

Thank You in advance!

The new software is a big step up on the old stuff. Well done. I noticed that when there is a hot object in the view the cool objects are lost in the image because the degree difference is not enough to show up on the final display. May I suggest you put a button on the final display to re-compute and re-display the data "logarithmically" to compress it and show up the finer details if so desired. It also might be a good idea to have a custom scan resolution window so you can enter something like 5X64 for a quick scan to check for termites in the wall. That's what I'm trying to do with your scanner in my house. Every two or three years they attack it.
Anyway, great work.
Cheers

I currently have no time to get into this. If you have a mathematical approach how to compress the data logarithmically, I could implement it fast.

Good idea, I will include that in the next version.
