I've got very good quality Optical Zoom, Plain Paper Copier/Document Sheet Feeder rig that needs a $200 Drum it's never going to see. It's been sitting here waiting to be carried to the curb for recycling. I also have a terminally ill/dead (won't interface with my macs but appears to run fine) ScanMaker E6 and a perfectly functional E-3 as a matched set for donor parts.
Before I chuck the copier out, what are the odds of getting a pile of optical/electronic crap like this to work together as a varifocal scanner(separate manual setups of magnification and height of the plane of focus above the platen) for scanning MLBs and other 3D objects?
TIA, for any advice,
CCFT and inverters at the least. If not for this scanner hack for a case mod.
