Can you put the subject on a Lazy Susanne instead?  The 1/4-20 tripod mount on most cameras will make it easy to build a platform for the camera to keep it locked in place, or if you are sure nothing will be bumped or moved, a simple tripod will work. Putting the subject matter on a rotating platform means the subject can be locked into place into the center of the lazy Susanne as well. It just comes down to making the same rotation every time and that seem like it would be easy to do.

Besides having the same positions for everything, you're going to want to have a camera that can be manually set. You will want the color balance, and exposure to remain constant. That means you'll probably want to control the light.

Thank you
Russell
