    bq's Ciclop 3D Scanner

    Spain-based bq presented one of the most unique 3D scanners seen on the floor at CES this week. The company produces tech such as smartphones and 3D printers; the Ciclop is its first 3D scanner, and it is also 3D printed. The Ciclop uses laser triangulation and a rotating turntable and will be available later this year at a price point under $500. The open source design can also be downloaded free of charge online for its main components, so anyone with a 3D printer can create one and only pay for the electronics to power it. Check out details and specs on the Ciclops in the full article: http://3dprint.com/35962/bq-ciclop-3d-scanner/

    Below is a photo of the Ciclop 3D scanner:

    Software Availability?

    I tried looking for the Free Horus Software but was not able to locate any linked to 3D scanning. Any links or ideas?

    are the ZUM boards available for purchase in the US? Been gathering parts for this build since it was announced a few weeks ago and that has been my only issue. Even on BQs website it doesnt seem as if they ship to the US.

    awesome! any idea WHEN the electronics (ZUM BT-328 and ZUM SCAN) will be available on your Amazon store?

    thought about using an Arduino board and CNC shield, but i would rather just follow what you have done and save myself potential headaches.
    been gathering other bits and pieces, stepper motor, lasers, threaded rod, etc...ever since i first read about this scanner a few weeks ago.

    Thanks!

    The sky is the limit in regard to 3D scanning technology for the consumer market as a number of commercial scanners are now on the market at affordable prices. Now a Spanish technology firm, BQ, is offering and open source scanner and an open source software product, Horus, to bring the technology to the masses -- and cheaply. BQ says using a kit and a 3D printer, makers should be able to build their own scanner for around $500, and the Horus software is free via an open source license. You can read the whole story here: http://3dprint.com/41186/horus-software-bq-3d-scanner/


    Below is a screenshot from Horus:
