Raspberry Pi Flatbed Scanner Server

In a recent donation to the hackspace there was a CanonScan FB630U A4 flatbed scanner and I thought that it could be useful to create a shared network scanner for use by the members.

This plan was gainfully assisted by a spare 256MB Raspberry Pi B, 16GB SD card, power supply & PiBow Raspberry Pi case.

Raspberry Pi setup

Start by downloading the newest versions of Rasbian Lite from the Raspberry Pi website.

Flash the Raspbian image onto the SD card using your tool of choice. I’m mostly using Etcher right now as it verifies after flashing.

Finished result
