Can an engineer advise on requirements to build a laser scanner? Answered


I have a need for a laser scanner that can scan an objects profile and save the dimensions of the scan in a vector or cad format. There are many 3D scanner plans here that are great. https://1drv.ms/v/s!Ajo22thXj77-nZ5iBDKaBwZWgqlW2g  is a video of exactly what I need for the same type of product. Can someone guide me in the right direction to build this device?

Here is a photo of the output to software view https://1drv.ms/i/s!Ajo22thXj77-nZ5kFzWgXNPyQig3QA .

There are many solutions available for free or very little money on a cosumer level, David Laserscanner is just one example.
Depending on size, structure and texture it often better to use camera images though.
