Re: 3D-Animation of my Bookscanner

I used Cinema4D R11.0 for the Animation and Rendering and Adobe Premiere CS4 for Editing the first and last 5 seconds, the Title and the Music. This is a good point. I saw a nice solution in the Video of Daniel_reetz laser-cut portable scanner. With two seperated plates, that can be plugged into a s...

Re: Post something about yourself here (The Hello Thread)

Hello, I am thinking of building my own Bookscanner and registered here to discuss my ideas. I did a 3D-Animation of my Idea, but I think I need some improvements in some of the Parts. I have to spend about 100-150€ every month on Books, and this is money I want to save in the future. Thats why I ...
