Dear Carl,

The free download that was discussed can be found at:
Goto Knoll Cybermesh (do not mind the remark that it is a Photoshop
plug-in: a Windows version is included).

Cybermesh converts grey values in any B&W bitmap file to heights,
thus converting 2D photo's to 3D geometry. Output can be done as
DXF polygon mesh. Do not expect 'real life' faces though: imagine
for instance the difference between a white man with a black beard and
a black man with a white beard.

The resulting polygon meshes can be machined very well
using DeskProto !

Best Regards,

Lex Lennings.
