Re: My first book scanner.

Yes it is made out of 3/4 MDF and its 22 1/2 x 16 1/4 x 31 3/4 inchs. I plan on making a full pdf of exact dimentions and how to build. However that won't be untill I work out the kinks. Now that I have built it I want to change a few things.

Re: Musinf Book Scanner

Wow 110€ my intire scanner cost less than half of that (excluding the cameras). However if you are looking for high quality then I guess that's not a bad price. You may want to look into 80/20 extruded aluminum. You could make up an aluminum frame and then have teflon slides on it. I am making a c...

Re: Musinf Book Scanner

The quality of the slides make a big differance. The only thing is the cost. If you are paying $100 for each slide I don't think it would be worth it. If you used drawer slided and made the back out of solid wood I think you would get the same results. The down side is it would make it a lot heavier...

Re: Musinf Book Scanner

On my scanner I have slided some what like this. I have found that they don't slide at the same rate, so it makes them slightly off. I think you may get binding when you slide the platen up and down.

Re: Que? Anyone?

Wow the Notion looks very impressive. I'm a big fan of android, I have had the g1 sence it came out. Android needs a lot of polishing though. I'm not sure how good it will work for an ebook type device.

Que? Anyone?

http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2010/01/plastic-logic-launch/ It looks like the perfect eBook reader for book scanners. Although the price tag is a little out of my budget. I have been watching it with great interest for a wile now. Now that its out I'm slightly disappointed with some of the things ...

Re: Tape Collection

This thread should either be an advertisement or market research for 3M (or both). I started to find out what all 3m makes, THEY MAKE EVERYTHING. I have a cheap beany (snow hat, if I spelled it wrong) made by 3m. If you go to there website they have like touch screens. I would love to work for them...

Re: Image size in a PDF?

No I don't want it just OCRed, because the math equations don't get OCRed. I have to have the math equations as images and the words OCRed and I don't want to have to go threw and select every equation in the book and set it as an image.
