Thats not bad at all. Did you do a top down shot as well on it, or just the rotation from the platform?

I need to build one of those when funds permit one of these days...

Just a rotation on the platform, it was very quick and easy. I ended up getting rid of a lot of data to make the processing lighter, so I think there's a lot of room for improvement in fidelity, too.

Tried to install on Linux today and when I ran Horus, it said I must have picked the wrong camera ID. I followed the guide on the BQ..com site but I think it is missing a link or pointer to Webcam software to use for the scanner software. If I disconnect the camera it says I need to connect the camera. So it sees it but is missing something not listed in the install guide on the Horus page.
I will express my CRAZY ideas at any time! So you have been warned. None of my opinions are Lulzbots and can be wrong at any second.

Check the terminal window. If you see some errors about exposure and HIGUI then you are using the wrong version of OpenCV. There's a BQ Labs specific version of OpenCV you need.

If you're on Fedora you can use the churchyard copr to get both Horus and opencv.
