Any Experience with Ciclops Scanners
As the title says, any one used them? Feedback?

No experience with those scanners, but have you seen this: https://hackaday.com/2019/04/07/get-great-3d-scans-with-open-photogrammetry/ ?
Thanks for the links and I had seen a little bit about that in the past.
Ok, perhaps not the best logic but the lack of many other people giving it a go on here or RepRap forums has encouraged me to give this a go.

Its a pain to get perfectly calibrated...
I wouldnt recommend it...
Look into photogrammetry instead
I got the impression the geometric accuracy of photogrammetry wasn't there?

It's mostly down to the technique and the amount of photos you can provide. For small objects you can get surprisingly good detail. It can't handle reflections at all, so getting a cheap polarizing filter, or dusting the object in corn starch can help a lot.
I've been experimenting with AutoDesk Recap. Even with the free trial it works quite well. https://www.autodesk.com/products/recap/overview
I could see some good examples of detail but less on geometric accuracy.
What open source offerings are available to stitch the photos?
Plenty to read through:

Ciclops? RUN the other way.
Want one? You pay shipping... oh, not really... I binned it (saved the camera and stepper) because I'd NEVER inflict that thing on another human.
Come on Danal, tells us how you really feel.
What were the issues you faced? I'm not expecting plug and play and plan to update the firmware and GUI.
