Re: Daniel's Work Thread: Toward a Hackerspace Scanner

Hi,

Hey Daniel, we can use the 1000 bearings you just buy and make with the CNC the flange pocket. Do you need one of my primitive CAD drawing to figure it out.... :lol:

See you

Fab
P.S. The sketch Jck refer you to, is my interpretation of a flange bearing sorry for my primitive CAD . :mrgreen:

Just a reminder that Fab52 devised an ingenious two bearing system that can be machined from one side: https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-6qatC3U3bAU/T1f5lRNXbMI/AAAAAAAAAUU/i5rdr404gjo/s640/jckdesign.jpg Hi, Here's an other solution for the two bearing cradlle arm.... https://lh5.googleusercontent...

Re: scan-manager -- python app for controlling tethered came

Hi Og, I download and test the v. 0.4.7 this morning. Here's the report: Nikon D90 DSLR I was able to capture and save Basic+NEF(raw) direct to the laptop. So this is working... but no matter if I set image quality at Fine or Normal+ NEF it's been saved at the Basic quality (460 kb or 96dpi). I also...

I've added code to switch the viewfinder off before shooting and then back on again so that will be in the next r...

Re: scan-manager -- python app for controlling tethered came

Hi Og, I do more testing this afternoon. Here's the result: It take a long time to load the photos (8 frames take a minute) at the start of the app. The viewfinder have to be turn off and on after each capture but I can leave it off and continue to capture... I was unable to save the capture in raw ...
