A while back I managed to snag a ‘Super early bird’ for the Creality CR-Scan Lizard on Kickstarter (there were some legal issues ) – the kickstarter is no longer active, and you can purchase them online .
Needless to say, I got a bargain!.
The original software that came with it was ‘crap’ and I struggled to get any scans out of the thing. But, an hour ago, I downloaded the latest version (from here )
and, ten minutes later, after two geometry and 1 texture scan merged, I got the below! – woo
Having an accurate scan helps a LOT when recreating things in CAD. Yes, the switches don’t look great, BUT, they’re 7mm squares – what I’m seeing, for the price I paid is, frankly amazing, AND, there’s quite a lot of improvement to be had.
So, next steps – Scanning larger things, and instead of working from photos as a canvas, I can use the original 3D item to create the angles! it’s going to be an interesting few months
