Ciclop DIY 3D scanner

The Ciclop is a DIY 3D Open Source laser scanner for the RepRap community. It uses two lasers to scan the geometry and texture of an object revolving on a turntable.

The Ciclop is the perfect partner for your 3D printer. The combination of a 3D printer and the Ciclop 3D scanner allows you to modify and recreate the objects you scan in to tangible objects.

The Ciclop is produced by bq, a company well known for their i3 Prusa and Wibox 3D printers.

100% Open Source 3D scanning

The Ciclop 3D scanner is developed with the RepRap community’s philosophy in mind: machines that you can make using 3D printers. Most parts of the structure are 3D printable and many of the vitamins are shared with other open design such as the Prusa i3 Hephestos.

The Ciclop 3D scanner is a 100% open source project and the community is encouraged to modify, improve and develop the scanner.

That is why the design of the Ciclop 3D scanner has been released on github under the CC-BY-SA license.
