I like that one since I can use my Nikon camera. Since the quality/detail of the scan depends on the quality of the photo .. and that I have a Macro lens I am going to go with this one .. probably… in part depending on getting my grubby paws on the hardware.

In the meanwhile, I downloaded the link to the “Tweaked Photo Sweep Stand” STL files since this looks to be useful for if nothing else, photographing models

So. I crank up my Prusa i3 MK3 printer. Had to extract the filament that already in place as it had broken off on the spool. That done I attempted to run the fist print.
