Fixes and howto for the DIY Fabscan 3D scanner


The fabscan is cheap. For my curiosity, I bought a DIY "Fabscan" to try scanning small objects cheaply. In my opinion, the most annoying thing was the totally unusuable FabScan Ubuntu Live CD software. This post is mostly about how to get it to produce an STL with the Ubuntu Live USB distribution specifically made for the fabscan. 3D scanning with fabscan. But it proved to be easier to use than to try to fix fabscan. and buggy, but it can be made to work.
