The prototype snapshot 3D digitization station as viewed from above. The specimen feed path is indicated by the vertical stripe with red trim at the center of the image.  For scale, the marked path is 16 inches long. Scaffolding, printed in several colors of PLA plastic, to the left and right of this path provide for fixed placement of six cameras each.  Three are visibly mounted above the semi-circular rail and three are less-visibly mounted below. Each is connected via ribbon cable to its control computer in the correpsonding stack at the lower left and upper right of the image.
