Ciclop 3d Scanner My Way Step by Step

I’m going to realize the famous Ciclop 3D scanner.

All the step that are well explained on the original project aren’t present.

I made some fix to simplify the process, first I print the base, and than I restilize the PCB, but go on.

Step 1: Printing and Assembly Part

For assembly part the best solution is to refer to origina documantation

in multilanguage and well explained.

The printed part are quite simple to assembling.

Step 2: New Base

The only piece that is difficult to find is the Plexiglass base, so I design a printable one with my Anet A8 3d printer.

You can find the project here .

Step 3: Little Fix

Another problem is that you can probably find a low cost laser that don’t fit on orginal holder.

The common laser is 12mm laser.

So you can use this printed variant.

Another problem is to stop the rotating part, I think the better solution is to use a rubber band, as you can see in the pictures.

Step 4: PCB Homemade

For this project I made a PCB fully compatible with the original one Zum scan is more complex, but all additional features is unused.

My version is for Arduino Nano, so It’s more little than the original one.

If you don’t have the skill to auto produce PCB you can use the gerber file that you can find in the aricle to sent to the factory that produce PCB like .

Step 5: PCB Etching

I never used this technic, but I add to this step the svg file or PDF for production.

Step 6: Milling PCB

I use this technic for my personal production, about this I write 2 article:

The first is a step by step guide to create a portable CNC perfect and optimized for CNC Milling.

Here the guide.

Than a previous guide that explain step by step how to use the machine, how to create a PCB and how to create a file for production.

Here the other guide.
