New Software Release v.0.8.0
We talked at the Makerfaire Hanover about the two lasers and you suggested a more powerful variant. But I can't remember ☹️
Can you please tell again which lasers are better to use?
Thanks a lot!
Well after a bit of a break I plan on loading up V0.8.0 and I read this about it not saving the scans. Should I hold off for now. Knowing very little about software I am not sure of "use the ftp-program to save the scanned .ply file"
Than you - Alan
What does not work on my 0.8.0 is the "file manager" in the browser. I can save the .ply directly after the scan, but I can neither convert it to .stl nor use the built-in file manager to save or delete it afterwards. The files are still there, though. You can use ftp or scp to save them afterwards.
To get around this, I would rather start with version 0.7.0 or wait until 0.8.0 is usable.
Thank you for your reply. Best that I hold off. With my little background if I install 7 and then try 8 when fixed I will most likely have trouble in do so!

@alan, the biggest news is -- in v 0.8.0 you have 2-laser support (not in the v0.7.0). The .ply file will be saved on the raspberry. But you must downloadet this with a externt ftp-programm on your pc.
Have you been in contact with Mario? Hopefully he is working on a fix.
Sure. It is almost done. ( https://github.com/mariolukas/FabScanPi-Server/commit/6235dd66ce4f13208d33c3568a741ac43675f386#diff-aa77e2968544782256abe2c04f8ef21d ). I think there will be a bugfix release before Christmas.
I fixed several thins until now:
- update routine fixed ( 6235dd6 )
- fixed loading scans from file manger ( #134 )
- fixed laser calibration check ( #132 )
I will try to also fix the basic MeshLab support.
Where do you find the time Mario? ? ? ?
Where do you find the time Mario?
I don't know. Somewhere between my family and day job. ?
@mario , Is the new update for the calibration of the 2 lasers for v 0.8.0 coming automatically or can I download it separately? I am still running the beta of 0.8.0 and there the scans of the 2 lasers are not quite the same. They move easily.
I have been holding off on installing 0.8 as I understand there was a bit of an issue. Also read something about server not working.
Is it now OK to install 0.8 ?
Thank you - Alan
