Dear Michael,

You say, it is an archaic method to scan a sculpture. But if I have a
physical model, so I get a computer representation by digitizing in
nearly 1 - 4 hours. This computer model we can use for 5-axis milling
and for rapid prototyping.
You explain to use POSER. But how much time I will need. If this way
is so easy, why nobody can give me a STL and point cloud of an ice
dancing couple ? Is this model a 3D-Model ?
