Here be where you place your research on 3D Scanning
To continuously research and develop amateur 3D scanning techniques (either with a laser a camera).
http://forums.hackaday.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=153 Was the original inspiration, however it is based on ridiculously expensive (399eu) software.
https://github.com/Matt-S/Open3DScanner/wiki Is more like what I'm proposing to build
Use an arduino, simple L293D bipolar stepper driver circuit, and throw in a 10k? Pot to an analog pin for speed adjustment.
Got a laser, but we may want to play with optics for precision
The hunt for an open source windows GUI software continues, lots exists, but mostly command line
One member offered a kinect,
Progress thus far
