Re: Hat design help (3d Scanner)

The freeLss scanner fits onto a protopi plate. I would share mine but its half assembled and not had the time to work on it. I cant say I'm supprised, its not an overly component heavy project as far as I can tell lol. I've almost finished designing my own board to do it. But first, I've got to put...

Re: Hat design help (3d Scanner)

and since its for use at my local hack space Is there anyone at your hackspace who can help. My local one ran a few PCB design sessions and there are generally people who are very happy to share their knowledge. quite possibly.

Hat design help (3d Scanner)

Ok, this is going to get complicated I'm building a FreeLSS 3d scanner and I'm struggling with the electronics. Basically, I need to design a board that can drive two 5V line lasers, and a 12V stepper (using a DRV8825 driver) I've tried looking at the circuit boards on the freelss website, and cant ...

Re: Photogrammetry?

Note you'll need to install the desktop version of Raspbian for the compile to work. That seems like an odd, ah well, obviously uses some of the X libaries or something I've just installed minmac on my desktop, going to see if I can learn how to use it while I wait for my new pi3 to arrive (my curr...

Re: Photogrammetry?

that's a structured light scanning, or laser light\line scanning

Similar, but not quite what I was looking for (hence I hadn't seen that)

freelss looks promising. So I'll have to take a look at that. Wasnt planning on going down the laser rout, but if its my only option...

Photogrammetry?

Hi guys I'm looking at building a 3d scanner rig with a pizeroW (or pi3), a camera module, and extra parts... I'm considering a Photogrammetry approach, whereby I rotate the object on the turntable (probably via a stepper motor) and take pictures at preset angles. This bit is relatively easy, what I...

Re: Unicorn hat - full spectrum light?

Daz, If you get the ikea one, then you can still control it with a relay board. And I really think its worth looking at the noIR camera to take photos, and even look at plant health :)

Re: GPIO22 Toasted - Remapping JSTEST

Why will the CPU fail soon?? It really depends where the damage is. But since the GPIO map to pins on the processor (pretty directly if I'm not much mistaken) If you have fried one of the GPIO, then there is a good chance that you have damaged the cpu where its connected. You may have got off lucky...

Re: 3d Printer host software?

Just our opinion as I know many others love it but we could not get any real support for our issues and was constantly told to provide logs without out further comment on them also no one had a better solution to supporting our printer other then tell us to get one that was. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:...
