So assembly is relatively easy .....

Just a slight modification made to the stepper motor mount. The kit I have - the stepper motor drive part is too high and the ball bearing ring does not sit down properly on the base. I used prop shaft adaptor rings between stepper motor and base to lower that drive boss. Ring now sits properly and turntable is stable.

But the real headache comes when trying to get it to connect to PC ...

My kit has the all in one Arduino v1.2 board and no-one seems to have a Youtube vid with it ... so it became a 'just try everything' situation. I tried 4 different PC's and finally the FIRST decided to play !!

Default settings produced what you see on Youtube .... holes and missing details.

Points to consider :

1. I was surprised that it needed good even constant light around it. Otherwise the lasers would not kick in for calibration.
2. Horizontal facets cannot be drawn because the lasers are fixed plane. This means tops of objects are 'open'.
3. Black areas are ignored - so dark painted / coloured areas of item can lead to holes or missed scan.

Prints need to post processed to fill in 'holes' etc.

But first scans went better than I expected ... so I think play with settings and we should start to see reasonable results.
