View How to utilize a file suitable for a 3d printer as a base for a milling machine product
status 2016 02 27 - first post. WIP.
The objective is to:
- either scan an artifact using something like a https://store.structure.io/store or d/l an existing 3d model of an artifact from a place \
like http://www.thingiverse.com which is appropriate to a 3d printed output
- undertake some magical process which the development of this gist will discover
- end up with an alternative digial representation of the artifact which may be used with an x-carve or similiar milling machine\
to create a physical example of the artifact using a reductive manufacturing technique.

how to install camera support for OpenALPR on a raspberry pi

This is a scratchpad for now.
please do not use it for anything...
Status a/o 2016 01 14: alprd will not connect to the mjpeg stream as configured using this tutorial. not sure why.
according to this: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/openalpr/oGgXBGCRYws you need to compile opencv with support
for libavcodec-dev, libavformat-dev, and libswscale-dev . previous tutorial does not include this and may break when
these are included. going back to test.
