The Scanse Sweep 3D Scanner Kit is an advanced 60-piece DIY kit that gives you everything you need to assemble a 3D scanner using your Scanse Sweep LIDAR sensor (not included). Outdoor 3D scanning has been around for decades, but has traditionally been much too expensive for home use. This kit aims to put this powerful technology into the hands of makers who want to develop and experiment with applications for long-range 3D scanning. The only tools you will need are a soldering iron, wire stripper, small Phillips-head screwdriver and 2.5mm ball-end hex key.

Each Scanse Sweep 3D Scanner Kit is controlled by an included Raspberry Pi 3, a stepper motor and driver HAT, and a 9DoF IMU — all housed inside an included 3D-printed enclosure. As the Scanse Sweep rotates in its seat, the top of the 3D scanner pivots back and forth, providing a complete three-dimensional scan of its surroundings!

This kit is not a finished product, but an evolving community effort. It’s built for DIY enthusiasts who want to get their hands dirty and try new things. We aren’t kidding; there is a lot of work that goes into assembling this kit, so we only recommend it for those of you looking for a challenge. If anything happens with any of the parts while you are assembling the kit, there is a full list of parts included in the kit, as well as 3D print files in the Documents tab.

Note: This kit does NOT include a Scanse Sweep, which will need to be purchased separately.

Important: As this is a DIY project, we are not offering any guarantee, dedicated support or refunds. Any support questions should be directed to the forum community and the issues tracker on the project GitHub page (found in the Documents tab). Buyer beware! We will not accept any returns on this product!
