Step 79: Run Page Builder.

Run Page Builder by clicking on "PgBldr.exe".

Watch this tutorial video to understand the interface conventions. Page Builder is highly effective software, but the efficiency is largely due to the special user interface. Watch this video before coming to us with problems about the software.



Just one more quick note: We're currently deciding how best to handle covers and stuff. If you run into a page order issue, just put your front cover image in the right folder.

Credit where credit is due: Though this is "my" project, it could not have been completed without Aaron (software), Noah (editing, camerawork, and more), and Lyle (electronics). It also saw benefit from advice from people like Nate H. Developing not only the book scanner, but the instructable really pushed the level of documentation I'm used to producing. At this point in time, I have as many hours into making this instructable clean and complete than I have in making the second book scanner. Seeing the 79th step come together, I can say it was worth it. And the book scanners are some of the most complex and enjoyable things I've built in a while.

That's it. I hope you build yourself a book scanner, and I hope that you enjoy more books because of it. If you appreciate the effort that went into this, please give us your vote. All four of us have some great ideas for the laser cutter, and you can bet if we win, they'll show up here. Thanks.
Hi, great. What about automatize pre process?.<br>Do you have something about this step forward?<br>We can support on that.<br>mbonifax@gmail.com
<p>Ha, couldn't make it to 100 steps eh!</p><p>A truly impressive instructable. You have put in an amazing effort to create this and the documentation - you should feel very proud of this effort. Both interesting and practical. Thank you!</p>

Great read and awesome detailed project. Too much work for me though. Good thing I prefer physical books to e books.

For a good source of glue syringes, go to woodcraft.com and search on 'syringe'. There are several types including Luer-Lok. <br><br>Also, you can try a friendly neighborhood pharmacist and tell them what you're trying to do, sometimes they'll just give you one. It's worth a try.<br>
Forgot to mention--you can also order syringes and needles straight from Amazon, super cheap.
