Welcome to FabScanPi’s documentation!¶
About the Project¶
FabScan is an open source 3D laser scanner. The project started in 2010 at Germany’s first FabLab in Aachen. The FabScan PI is the next generation of the FabScan 3D Laser Scanner and since 2015 Mario Lukas took over as the lead developer of the project. The project is a community and spare time driven project.
Even if it looks like a team of many people is working in it, mostly only two or three people are working on the current branch ( please thing about it while you are waiting for support ).
The core of the project is based on a Raspberry Pi and a Raspberry Pi camera module. With those components the scanner can be driven standalone. It can be controlled over a web-enabled frontend.
