Scanner is billed as accurate to 50 microns, so good enough for a 3D printer. I'll worry about hacking the resolution up later (it's a beautiful kit, Fabscan PI, open source, potentially hugely upgradable).

You can't print a full case out on 99% of all 3D printers, but things like trapdoor covers and caddy's should not be a big problem.
Ill try not to drift too much off topic, but the scan will probably need a clean up. What formats can you save it as. Maybe you could send it to Phil's Solid Works guy as a reference.
It could then be part of the "free digital model of the A1200" that was promised in the KickStarter.
Btw, looks like an interesting kit for €185. Feel free to post a review of hte scanner in another thread at some point ;-)
