Completed scanner

This was a team project built for the Olin course Principles of Engineering. It is a 3D scanner that uses a 2-axis gimbal with an IR distance sensor mounted on it to scan a region and plot it into a plane as a heat map

I designed, 3D printed, and assembled the hardware, wrote Arduino code to scan an object and send data over serial, and wrote a Python program that reads the serial data, saves it, and plots it as a heat map.

The original repo can be found here.
