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.

Wow! Is this your scanner or just something you found on the internet?
Do you have any information on the motors/mechanics used in the design?

I like this, especially the way the platen drives the cradle down to a set point so the cameras are always focused. Got any more video?
