I picked up the kit from sparkfun took me about 35 mins to put it together and start scanning.
couple of small notes
i feel like putting the imu in before the rpi would have been easier.
the picture/diagram for the imu board in the pdf could be easier to see, wires obscure it and if you follow in order its hard to read.
same for the idc pins, once you realise they're breadboard style, the picture in the pdf just could be clearer
the usb power connector for the battery needs a 2-3mm notch in the lower 3d printed case to get most usb cables to clear properly
i found the usb cables in general to be a bit flaky, i pulled it apart when the motor wasn't spinning, didn't notice the led was off, but the usb wasn't snug, its alos easy to knock it on the rpi and make it reset,
the only tricky bit is making the usb wire to the scanse sit properly when its rotating and not interfering, any snag at all when the motor turns is noticeable in the scanned output.
oh and i gave up with the level, too fiddly
otherwise really nicely put together kit, clever design on the 3d printed parts. i'll probably cut the usb cables out and wire in directly.
on the software side, all i noticed was that scan times sometimes vary by a lot, can be a minute, or many minutes for same settings.
