RE: [rp-ml] Low Cost 3D Scanning

We perform a lot of scans that are well under $500. Most of the cost
however is in post-processing (that is producing the parametric file,
creating a NURBS surface, etc.). It's all dependent on what you need to
do next with the file that drives a large portion of the cost. As an
example, if you want a scan of the 25 cm x 2.5 cm object compared to an
existing CAD model, the cost would be $378. Developing a new CAD model
from the scan would add cost to the project, depending on the complexity
of the shape.

Most of the 3D scanning that we have done in the past has been
relatively expensive (e.g., $1000 per object).
Does anyone on the list know where the scanning that can be done by a
service bureau for less money. We are looking for a service bureau
that can scan 25 cm by 2.5 cm objects.
