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.

thanks for contribution.. Want to get closer to device in image..

Well, then be prepared to fork out a few thausand bucks....
And same again for the software.
