What it does

The 'device' rotates an object as we take pictures of it. We then run the picture through a 3D modelling software.

How we built it

We used an ESP8266 based NodeMcu as the brain of the whole thing, a DRV8825 stepper motor driver and an old printer stepper motor. The stepper motor spins a platter which holds the object as it turns. We used different Arduino/C++ libraries for wifi functionality and controlling the stepper motor.

Challenges we ran into

Powering the motor/drive.

What's next for 3D Scanner

We are currently looking into automating the entire process.
