If you are looking for scan shield but don't want to build your own (because its pretty much impossible to land a ZUM Scan Shield in the states) I will be producing a bunch. They are for my own version of the Ciclop but they have identical functionality to the ZUM scan so you can use it to build any 3D scanner you want. [www.kickstarter.com]
Hi, I'm hoping to build the BQ Ciclop scanner and have a logitech C920 that I could use instead of the C270. I realise that the stl file holding the camera will need to be modified. But I have a few other questions;
1) Is it necessary to remove the lense cover of the camera due to its distorting effect on the laser or is that only done on the C270 so that the camera manual focus may be adjusted?
2) Is the lense center height in the plastic housing a critical dimension?
I'm missing about 8mm off the bottom of my scans. I've tried changing the distance setting in calibration (from base to the top edge of the first square) and it doesn't change anything. Wondering what i'm doing wrong here?
Printed a full size platform, i was using a purchased acrylic one before that i drilled the holes in a little off center, and it wasn't quite as thick. Still missing the bottom few mm. after replacing the plate. Other than that the scans are great.
A guy at work told me that you can make a solution to cut down the reflectivity of objects out of 3:1 alcohol and baby powder. I'm going to try it on a nice shiny Matchbox car and see how it works.
I have just built a Ciclop scanner and I am now getting to grips with the calibration. It is very sensitive to the ambient light but I am now getting some pretty detailed scans even if there are holes in them.
I found some of the parts difficult to print on my reprap printer and I ended up buying a set of blow moulded parts from Hong Kong on Ebay. Cheating maybe but the end job is good.
The scanner seems ideal for copying small objects that fit a 200 x 200 print bed.
I have also built a Skanect using an xbox 360. It is for larger scans such as full body and head and shoulders scans.
Bonjour à tous.
Je viens de terminer le montage de mon Ciclop, tous les éléments sont
opérationnels (lasers, moteur, caméra ).
Mais, je suis confronté à un soucis à savoir :en mode calibration les lasers
ne s'allument pas et donc la calibration échoue.
En "manuel" je les commande sans problème.
Je n'ai pas trouvé la cause de ce défaut sur ma machine.
Quelqu'un aurait il une piste à m'indiquer?
