Discuss 3D scanning and 3D scanning-related topics.
So now with the 3d printer running (somewhat) the Mrs. wants a 3d scanner. It will primarily be used to scan small hand crafted "heads" for reproduction. Size is anywhere from marble sized up to probably 6 inches or so in diameter for various craft projects they do. Was wondering if anyone had suggestions - was thinking middle of the road type Afinia ES360 - does anyone have any experience or suggestions? So yes, I'm looking at spending 5X as much on a scanner than the printer - but I'm not sure the lower priced machines will give me the results I want - even though in 5 years the same machine will be less than half the price probably. Thanks.
