Philip, or Raymond, some of the things to consider for what technique you use
are object complexity, size, dimensional accuracy replication and data interface
or need. A good site that contains a list of vendors as well as a description
of services is http://lamar.ColoState.EDU/~wohlers/ and the section is 3D
Digitizing and Reverse Engineering. SMS provides x-ray ct with internal and
external information that can translate to CAD or FEA. If you need any other
information, we are having another Reverse Engineering seminar in conjunction
with SME in December that is covering all of your up and coming questions.
