You inspired me to give it another try.
Could not calibrate. It seems the camera overheats after about 15 seconds.
So I said the heck with it, scan anyway. Go for the Full Monty, High Res. 30 Minutes. I can wait. 19 minutes in, it was actually looking half-arsed decent in preview, and then the turntable started binding up and popping. 6 little steps forward. BANG. a big step back. Erring on the side of caution I shut it down. Perhaps something misaligned from the laser pole fix way back when, so better not to force it.
I'll try again after the upgrade kit is installed.
I would normally be a bit concerned about the inability to calibrate, but since the camera will be getting replaced too, we will see what happens there.
I will say, out of the 3 scanners I have, FLUX was the big letdown, but maybe that will improve after upgrading and I figure out whatever is binding the turntable.
Post your results though. And some time in Meshmixer is completely normal for ANY scanner so no harm no foul with that.
