Which one is better? Platen's angle 100 or 90 degree?

Built a scanner? Started to build a scanner? Record your progress here. Doesn't need to be a whole scanner - triggers and other parts are fine. Commercial scanners are fine too.

Oh. I got it. Now I understood Daniel's second video on YouTube. And I tested it on my smart phone(black screen) with wallet case. Thank you guys, konos 93a, dpc, cday. Dpc's comment was decisive to understand it. Thank you so much.

My last question, how can I show the image on this Web site when I post it?

i imagine in 90 degrees you need more effort to flatten the page than 100 degrees ,or the page will get fold .(but thit is gonna tell you if happen people who have 90 degrees scanner )

about reflections you can solve that with a light in a taller spot . i mean if you enlarge the distance between the middle of the glasses and the light source.

so when you capture an image you can see a lighten cycle inside the space of the glass if you have not good degrees .

to upload image go to imageupload site upload an image and then choose the link like

then when you post type ([img] hhttps://www.imageupload.co.uk/images/2016/11/28/IMG_6630.jpg [/img] with one h) between the link
