3d scanner, mechanics

Ive decided the perfect partner machine for a 3D printer is of course a 3d scanner.

I have started to make a spinscan

All the mechanical stuff is done, and I have acquired a line laser and a web cam.
This just needs a round bit of wood attached to the main gear. 

The electronics are next, this could be interesting, as its not what I would call documented, but then it is very beta.

I've looked around for spools I like, so far I don't like any of them.
This in part is as my real does not seem to match any of them.

Finally i found one I like.

OK I'm telling porkies.  I designed this clamp to fit my 500 meter Spool from Vik

Now it is available on thingiverse for all to enjoy.
