The ATLAS 3D Kit is a 3D scanner kit you can print and build yourself. The kit contains everything required to assemble the scanner except for the enclosure. The enclosure can be 3D printed or an acrylic enclosure can be added below for those who do not want to 3D print parts. This includes a Raspberry Pi B+ (the Raspberry Pi 3 is available for an additional charge), a 5 megapixel CMOS sensor, 2 laser modules, electronics board, 8GB MicroSD card, Wifi adapter, power supply, stepper motor, high friction turntable liner, rubber feet, the 3D printable files, and all of the fasteners and cables. No soldering or electrical knowledge is required to build the ATLAS 3D kit, all of the components simply screw together. The user must either purchase the acrylic enclosure or print the plastic parts for the kit.
ATLAS 3D works by illuminating an object with laser light and then using 3D triangulation to generate a point cloud for each location where the laser hits the model. Neighboring points are then connected as triangles to form a 3D model. This model can be used as-is for many purposes or it can be processed in a software package such as Meshlab to make it water-tight and print ready.
All of the software runs onboard the Raspberry Pi, so there are no required drivers or software packages to install. A web browser is used to communicate with the scanner on your home network. Once a scan is performed, the web browser is used to download the resulting models.

The acrylic enclosure is the preferred enclosure for ATLAS 3D. It allows the user to assemble the kit and immediately begin scanning without the need to 3D print parts.
An enclosure can also be 3D printed. The 3D printed parts are not included as part of the kit and must be printed by the purchaser if the acrylic enclosure is not purchased. The STL files for the 3D printed models can be found at http://www.murobo.com/printables.html

ATLAS 3D compares favorably to the competition for a fraction of the price.
The ATLAS 3D kit contains the following components.
The scanner software is pre-installed on the SD card and ready to run. International orders receive a power supply that supports the power frequencies and voltages used throughout most of the world (100-240VAC, 50/60HZ). It has a U.S. style wall plug, so a plug adapter may be necessary in some countries.
All of the ATLAS 3D software runs completely on the Raspberry Pi. Communication with the scanner occurs through a normal web browser. This allows ATLAS 3D to be controlled from virtually any modern operating system including Windows, Linux, Mac, and even most cellphones.
ATLAS 3D has a 30 day limited liability warranty.
