I just got back from Quality '99 in Chicago. A Belgian company (Metris) was
showing off a scan data processing software that included three modules that
_inside_ autoCAD. One of these modules was supposed to create a closed
solid from (subsampled) scan data. They also have functions for polygonizing
scan data.

They also have a pre-processing program for editing, merging, and
smoothing scan data.

The software did appear to be somewhat unstable during the ~hour I sat with
company representative, but it your mileage may differ.
