Built a scanner? Started to build a scanner? Record your progress here. Doesn't need to be a whole scanner - triggers and other parts are fine. Commercial scanners are fine too.

scann's and bond's book scanner

Hi all,

We are from Capital Federal, Argentina, and we have finished our book scanner!

Here are some photos:

And we have also made a video to show off how it works:



We are planning to make a manual in Spanish, since I am a university student and I have contact with other university students which are anxious to get ready in making book scanners. This scanner will end up in my library faculty.

Thanks to you all in the diybookscanner community! All the threads have been really instructable.

Cheers!

Fantastic work, and possibly our first Argentinian scanner! I appreciate the very clean, very straightforward build and the effort you've put into photographing and videotaping it. Thanks for joining up!

Thank you Daniel!

I was wondering if you could give me a user in the wiki, to help organizing a bit all the information that is here...

Yes, actually, I have been meaning to fix the wiki registration for weeks now. Can you please email me on Sunday or sometime after tomorrow and I'll try to get that fixed so anyone can get going?

I really appreciate your willingness to contribute even when the wiki is weirdly broken/preventing you... I'll get it sorted. I think we lost user registration with the last wiki software update.
