A better designed and cheaper version of the Ciclop 3D scanner is now available. While i have not used the original cyclop 3d scanner that Lulzbot currently sells i will say that for the price and the threaded rod design i have been reluctant to get one. This new iteration designed by cowtech, but based on the original Ciclop looks awesome. And the price is hard to beat. I’m seriously thinking of getting one.
