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.

Studio Mango Linear Fully Automatic Book Scanner

Based on the original Dany Qumsiyeh DIY vacuum book scanner (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JuoOaL11bw), this is a professionally designed commercial linear bookscanner aimed at corporations like Google.


I've been in touch with chief designer Paul Hendrikx of Studio Mango over the past two years, and this commercial version is now ready. It also comes with software. It's too expensive for anyone here (12,000 euros), but just thought I'd let people know what's possible.

Do you know, if it will be available as a kit or they will share any documentation to help DIYers ?
