Re: New Scanning Software - YASW

It is stated that this bug has been fixed a while ago (0.4), maybe its introduced back in 0.5. I think I get in touch with the author.

Dear David,

Do you also experience problems when loading a project with unsorted filenames?

Re: New Scanning Software - YASW

Dear develover tibob, I am using the latest v 0.5 on Linux. If I save my project, close the program and load the project file into the program the page order by filename (increment by one 0.jpg, 1.jpg, etc) is completely random which is bad because the exporting will give new filenames and than I ca...

Re: A new scanner design using plastic tubing

Dear David,

Thanks for the explanations and photos on how to attach the light. I now have a 20 Watt LED and attaching it like you showed me. The goosenecks also arrived, I am thrilled If I can reduce keystone! The software you showed looks good.

Thanks again for your help

Re: A new scanner design using plastic tubing

the alignment of the cameras on the camera support arms is really giving me hard times. I get a lot of keystone in every possible position.

Re: A new scanner design using plastic tubing

another question.

I saw in your inital bill that you had a 30 watt LED on it, in the instructables you say 20 watt.

Is 20 watt sufficient or is it the more the better? I can order 20, 30 or 50 watt on ebay.

Re: A new scanner design using plastic tubing

Hey David,

I am just finishing my work on the scanner. What I dont fully understand is how the light is attached. Do you got an recent picture of your instructables scanner showing how the light is attached to the frame?

Re: A new scanner design using plastic tubing

Hi David, Thank you so much for your hard work on this really nice plastic tubing scanner! I have just started building my own. It was a bit hard for me to get those plastic tubings here in Germany, this is not available in my local hardware store ;). Just a quick note on the latest instructable ver...
