Re: FlexScan3D - SLS Scanner Software

I started following David 3D many years ago and was sad to see it handed over to HP, where it appears to be dying. I would like to find a DIY alternative that is actively supported. Possibly FlexScan3D will be that for me and others. I would like to see support for Imaging Source cameras since that ...

Re: Tripod suggestions

Thanks for the photo. I wasn't sure what to expect, but now that I see it I think I've seen you post something about it before. I assuming it's all steel and stable because of the weight. Are you using a ball head camera mount on the end? Also, how did you get such a large calibration panel square?

Re: Tripod suggestions

@Micr0 - Do you have a picture of a gantry stand? Is this what you are using? I'm not sure I've seen anything like that for a scanner/camera before.

Also, did you mean Manfrotto? I'm not familiar with the Manfredo brand.

Thanks.

Tripod suggestions

So, I'm trying to update my system and starting to look into buying a better tripod. Guessing my equipment (cameras and projector will weigh about 3 to 5 lbs - aluminum rail is about 2 feet long). Does anyone have any recommendations for something relatively stable/strong, adjustable, and hopefully ...

Re: Camera upgrade question - IR filters / shutters

Thanks again OBNRacerMan. I'm hoping the device/camera name isn't an issue. I'm not sure how I would change them for the Imaging Source cameras.

Re: Camera upgrade question - IR filters / shutters

Thanks for the info OBNRacerMan. From what little I read I was pretty sure that the shutter wouldn't matter but just wanted to hear it from someone else. I found some used DFK 37BUX178 Imaging Source cameras on ebay that I can get for about half the price of new so I'm hoping they might be a good op...

Camera upgrade question - IR filters / shutters

Just thinking about updating my camera and it's been a long time since I've done any scanning or reading on the forums. But I was just wondering if it matters too much if the cameras have IR cut off filters or not. Doesn't seem like it should but not sure. I'm also wondering if it matters if it's gl...

Re: Stayin Alive, Stayin Alive!

Since you mentioned the focusing thing, I've been wondering if it would be possible to use the new light field cameras like the Lytro Illum. I have a photographer friend that has one and seem very cool and not that expensive. Might be worth a try. Oh, and excellent scan by the way.
