Try CT Scanning based method. I dont think any laser digitizer can capture
at a resolution of .01mm. Somebody might have to make a custom scanner for
such a small device.

On an interesting side note... At the SME Rev Eng conf in Cleveland a few
weeks ago Greg Hanna (I forget the name of the company) was showing a point
laser digitizer measurement system that had the accuracy to .001 mm or
better. However, the system wasnt set up as a complete digitizing system.
Some metrology machines may be able to scan at that small scale like a
surface scanner.

Hello rpmler,

does anybody know a way to digitize very small complex objects (0.01 mm
-10 mm)?

Thanks for your help
