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.

Thanks to the forum - I got really good inputs regarding choosing cameras, glass, lighting and software.

This is great work - and a great first post (Welcome!!) - and Rob, the other admin here - is looking to build an "inverted V" scanner for doing paperbacks. Any chance you could post an example image from your scanner?

Thanks for taking the time to share here.

Wow, that's a really awesome design! I love the repurposing of the table.

does anyone have practical experience of using this type of "inverted V" scanner. Pros vs. cons? How fast can you be with this one?
