I’m looking at making a book scanner for some personal/professional reasons. There are books I want a copy of in PDF that are 1) out of copyright, and 2) difficult to find or way too expensive at online stores.
Not sure how much this will cost to build, but I’m guessing it’s less than a 3d printer. OTOH, it’s rather too large to keep in my studio. Dimensions are roughly 1m x 1m x 2m(?) as it can handle rather large texts.
If we can find a place for it at Protohaven, I’m happy to build one and let it live there and do maintenance.
