This month got very busy and with snow and spring break mixed in, left not a lot of time to work on the project. But, I was able to fix some of the issues. Looking into the stepper motor and adafruit control board, I was able to switch the stepper motor from single coil stepping to micro stepping to which I believe is 16x. This change has allowed for a much smoother turn and prevents objects from jumping / shifting when it is moving. I have also 3D printed some components that allow for a more polished look. I will be continuing that process through the next month.
As far as getting Autodesk ReCap Photo to work, I have still been unsuccessful with the scan. It continues to reject the photo set and not attempt to create a mesh of the pictures. I think I will try taking pictures with a camera and upload to the software to make sure it is truly an issue with the photo resolution/aspect ratio of the phone and not the software.
After working through the camera idea, I will have a better idea about how to approach the next steps. If it is the raspberry pi that is creating the issue, I may have to work with using a different camera, maybe a webcam. Either way, I am moving in the right direction hardware wise, but the software is the bottleneck right now.
