Cutting file This is the eps file, that it is uploaded on the ponoko website. The design is composed in 2 sheets. It is complemented with some pictures showing the final project
Fabrication time 15 minutes were needed in order to prepare the dxf file for the cnc laser machine . The material used; 5 mm wood.
Assembly There was no manual for the assembly, the documents that I have followed to assemble the iphone scanner were the jpg files and also the text that it is in the website, with a description about the material to used and the size of the finish object. I have spent 10 minutes to complete the assembly.
Once the model was built, I have observed that the own designs´s structure, was producing some shadows on the surface were the documents were place. Considering that situation,The change I have proposed consist in a lighting stripe of LEDS, located in the internal part of the U shape. This stripe will provide a constant and uniform light, that will allow the user to be able to scanner without natural light.
