The internal of the Laser Scanner control Box

This time i am showing you the inside of the laser scanner control box... The heart of the controller unit is Arduino which is programmable microcontroller... Programming of this controller is a fun project and learn a lot...
The wiring as you see in the picture was done with great care and now i have some electronics knowledge that is used to complete this project... This hardware was completely done by me along with the microcontroller programming...

I have many options available in the hardware... The controller box is supplied with Laptop power supply , Arduino controll the Laser, stepper motor and texture light.. I also added some buttons to reverse and forward the stepper motors.. A plug is provided for installation of limit switch...

In future i will add some more functionality in this setup as i have lot of place to add some more buttons, however the wiring will be really very tricky then....

Spray Bottle Scan with Improved Hardware

Attached you can see the scan of spray bottle  .. Total 9 scans , each scan cycle took 2minutes.. Approximate height of the spray bottle is 250mm and 80mm in diameter...

The alignment and stitching was a difficult part due to symmetry in the model.. However, i learn a lot in stitching the scans... The results are attached...

Improved Laser Scanner Setup

It took a lot of time and patience to make the hardware of my laser scanner setup in such a way that:
1- It can easily perform the scanning without calibration panel.
2- It can be easily disassembled and assembled in new location.
3-Compact in size for transportation
4- Aesthetically look beautiful
5- Electronics have all the control features
6- The complete setup is light weight.
7- Accurate and reliable 
After, considering all above and lot more i was able to DIY the hardware and made the first test scan.. Attached are the pictures of my improved Hardware..
