should i buy David now !!!

Post by geodav » 06 Jan 2017, 16:22

don't know if you guys remember me from the old forum but ho well.

i've been following David since version 1, never had the money for the licence or the hardware, the last few years i've managed to get a Dell M115 projector (modded) and a logitech 920 (modded with a cheap lens 20euro's) but still unsure if it's worth investing in a license.

basically i want to scan objects as small as 5mm to ones a lot bigger, the tests i've done over the years show promise but version 5 is slow and i always have issues trying to calibrate.

investing in a license just for my hobby will be hard thing to convince the wife

My understanding is that there is no difference between the demo and the licensed except the ability to save your projects. Other than that I think you have answered you own question.

If i were to buy one now i would stick to 4 as the 5 stereo is very flawed and unfinished. with the buy out i don't think it will ever get fix
