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.

laser depth mapping

Why not use laser depth scanning? It seems like the more obvious method. We have quite a few things we use that have laser scanning. I am well aware that architectural scanning is not an unusual process. Why not scan at the sort of level of detail that these images are captured at. I imagine that that sort of detail would allow the kind of dewarping being discussed at several levals. It may not be horribly fast but it should work. Several projects are posted online for DIY laser scanners It is not a self assembling nanobot system but why could this not work?
