I got this kit because of the $150 price tag - I am a little disappointed about the quality of the printed parts - The door cover has holes and is very fragile and I had to remove some bosses inside to get the board in and there were no mounts for the board so I had to dill a couple of holes and use a zip tie to mount it firmly in place also the turn table none slip cover was missing. For instructions etc you have to download a huge file - The kit included a note saying customs would not let then send a CD??????????????? I will re-print parts and for the price it seems a good deal still.

If you are looking for a cheap scanner this is the best option available out there. The scanner comes as a kit and the assembly is pretty simple. It took me around 3 hours to get it working and have scanned 10 objects and all of them came out pretty well.

I would recommend this scanner for anyone who needs a scanner at the price of $150 its as good as any thing gets.

I wanted a 3d scanner for scanning small objects but most of the scanners available out there were very expensive. Then a friend told me about He3d Ciclop which was available for just $150. As it’s a complete opensource scanner it does not require expensive scanning software to process the scans. The hardware quality is pretty nice and the rotating table top looks sturdy. This scanner can scan (Ø) 250 x (H) 205 mm.I have scanned some nice stuff using this scanner and with right lighting the scans are as good as professional scanners.

The scanner is ok and the scan needs a lot of rework.

I use this scanner for scanning small figurines and most of the times the scanner works well. Remember to color coat any shiny object which scanning as the camera lenses just cannot pick them. Horus 3d scanning software isn’t that great and needs some serious redoing. The good thing is that you could just reprint all the parts of the scanner on your printer in case you break them.

As an architecture student and someone who loves to play around with gadgets and 3D models, I really appreciate this 3D Scanning piece by Ciclop. I am really happy on having made a decision to buy this one. Everything right from the DIY installation kit and the scanning resolutions is perfect. Working on my projects has become real easy and even more interesting. This 3D scanner is just fantastic!
