Was looking into 3d Scanners. Makerbot makes one that is $799 but did not feel like shelling out that much and their approach to open source. The Ciclop is a open source design by a spanish company BQ who also sells a kit by the same name. This kickstarter takes their design and has made it more affordable. This is ofcourse based on the assumption that the backers will be printing their own 3D parts for the scanner.

$99 gives you everything except for 3D printed parts.

Thingiverse had the the 3D printed parts published by BQ.
