[edit] 3D Scanning

One thing missing to have a fully coplyleft hardware is a copyleft case designs. One of the first steps to achieve this is get a 3D model of the ben nanonote case, and then build upon that base editable model in cad sofware like Heekscad

So far i found here in Colombia a enterprise called i3D (i3D.com.co),

They ask me some questions and give me some requirements to get a costs of the process and i answer as follow:

Conditions to scan the stuff:

1. The stuff is give in separate parts or will be scanned in just one piece?

 Separate parts

2. How many parts is made the case of the device.?

 6

3. How many pieces you expect be given after the scan process?

 6

4. Are you providing the parts assembled or disassembled?

disassembled

5. Is required to paint the surface of the parts with a clear color is this posible?

                                                                                                                                                                             Yes

6. Now to get a cuote i need pictures of every piece by separate



[edit] Expectations

I was looking at i3D webpage, and i have doubts about how acurate is its deviveces for scanning small models, but they diserve a try

I'm not hoping get 3D printable moldes from the scanning, but at least STL files from wich later will be posible desing over it, or get points to build a new one case.


[edit] Why?

The case is what you fit in your hands, why not to try first make one prototype your self using this FLOSS 3D printers out there, any why not have a editable model that could be usefull to get custom/forks of the case you dream off ;)

[edit] Prices

Almost 220usd per part and a total of 1500usd for everything (madness !), so for i move to a desing this your self alternative
