How to Create a Portable Document Scanner for Your iPhone
Hi this is Christopher Mosiello of Vitamincm.com. Today we’re gonna learn how to make a portable document scanner that you use with your iPhone. I start it up by taking the dimensions from the diagram that I drew and transferring them on to a piece of cardboard. I just used tape measure and a straight edge and a sharpy pen to draw the lines on here. Now I’m going to need cut out two of these to make the stand for my scanner. So I’m just going to use simple razor knife and a straight edge to cut the line. Okay so let’s pop out the middle, and this is going to be the base of our stand. I need to make another one just like this.
Next time, you could cut the two pieces that are going to be the cross part on the bottom here, so I just do one inch section of crosses, and I just double it up on top with itself and cut them both once. I’m going to need even smaller parts to be the cross part to top. Now I need to cut ½ inch groove into places on each of the cross pins at the bottom, so I have it marked on the top one and I hold it and cut them both so they’re perfectly aligned. I need to put the same notch in the top half of the big cross part. So I just copy the notch down. Now, if your notch just doesn’t fit perfectly, you might want to loosen them up a little bit with the scissor.
So I started putting it together just by slipping the cuts into the notches. So once it’s all done, you just need to drop in a rectangular piece of card board to set your documents on and you can take your document, place that on. Place your phone in, take a picture. And there you have it perfectly scanned into the perfect size and you can just import it to your computer. The best part is when you hold a new thing it folds up into a couple pieces of the cardboard that you can fit a size of a manila folder and it’s out of your way and re- assembles in another couple seconds when you need it.
