Daniel Reetz, the founder of the DIY Book Scanner community, has recently started making videos of prototyping and shop tips.

I will accept pull requests for fixes on other platforms.And so I was able to take many of the core capture components of Spreads and roll them into a much simpler piece of software called Pi Scan.By limiting the scope of the project and designing it to gracefully handle camera failure from the start, I have been able to create a much more solid piece of capture software. Images are simply saved to external storage as sequentially named filenames (interleaving the images from the two cameras).But Spreads is a large and complicated system with multiple interfaces, running on multiple platforms, supporting many cameras, and fulfilling many roles in book scanning) This complexity meant that it was difficult to make it really robust.Luckily, Johannes had the foresight to make Spreads open source.
