Re: New version of FreeLSS committed to Github

Great software updates!  The new preview options allow me to use the Atlas 3D as a stand-alone...exactly what I was wanting.

This scanner just keeps getting better and better.

Thanks for all your hard work.

Re: New version of FreeLSS committed to Github

FreeLSS version 1.20 is now available via the ATLAS 3D auto-update system.  It is a minor release that allows for larger objects to be scanned than the default size of 8.5 inches (if the scanner is modified in a way to support larger objects).  This is controlled via a new option to the Setup page called Max Object Size.

OK, how do we modify it "in a way to support larger objects"? big_smile

Re: New version of FreeLSS committed to Github

Well. I am the reason for larger objects :-)

This is my "TinkerToy" scanner. Can be built using handtools.

Scaled up from the Atlas-scanner. Since then I have moved the lasers closer to the camera. Plus added a gearbox between the stepper and the table.

Very nice!  Are you using the stock lasers?

Re: New version of FreeLSS committed to Github

The lasers are standard 12mm linelasers from ebay.

I have stopped further use and development on my TinkerToy scanner because the quality of the scans does not fullfill my requirements.

I have tried both the Frelss and the Fabscan software with same negative results.

In the future will use AgiSoft Photoscan. My very first test with photoscan based on 60 photos from different angles all around my object gave me an stl-file that could be sliced and printed without further processing other than aligning the object to the printbed.

So goodbye to laserscanning.

FreeLSS 1.21 has been made available via the ATLAS 3D update system.  It removes the restriction on only using the first 8 pins of the Pi for motor and laser control.
