Interesting: DIY a low-cost high-performance 3D scanner based on Livox LiDAR

Postby Kunda1 » Thu Jan 31, 2019 11:11 am

Came across this post:
I ordered a livox Mid-40 since i saw it here earlier last week and decided to make a 3D scanner out of it during the weekend. I also bought a motor on the DJI store to use together with Mid-40 so that it covers 360 degrees. The lidar works perfectly while rotating. See my pictures and videos below for a continuous scan in the office space.

Hello,

I think your projects are great.

I also have a mid-40 for 1 week and I want to learn a lot about it.
Can you help me with that?
In your project you have a slam recording how did you manage that?
Which programs do you use for this?
how do you combine the rotation with the Lidar recording to get an all-round recording?

I would look forward to an answer.

Best regards
Konstantin

It's not my project. It's something I found online.
