The software and drivers were extremely easy to load up. Easier than the Rubitech, so points to Ciclop. However I had trouble getting the calibration to move forward. Eventual I found it was a problem with light. You really need a well lit room, but no direct light or it washes out the laser.
The second problem is that even with calibration the left and right laser scans are off. And it's not a shift as much as a scale problem. One scan is dilated 2.5mm inside the other, which to me says one laser is reporting the points are closer to the point of rotation than the other one. It's possible my calibration tool wasn't precisely constructed, resulting in this discrepancy. it's possible I can fix this by adjust the numbers manually. I still have to play with it. But it's good that I can play with it.
But here's the good news. As a measuring tool the Ciclop is showing promise right now. The actual doll measures 63.5mm across the dress and the scans measure 63.9 for the right scan and 60.5 for the left scan. If I figure out how to get those two scans so they agree with each other the point cloud could provide at least an accurate reference for modeling.
It's not time to call it yet. While the Ciclops scans aren't yet useful, they show promise and Rubitech just uploaded an update to their software, so maybe soon I'll have at least one useful scanner. Stay tuned for more.
