Hi Doug;

[That sounds pretty expensive - was this a reverse
engineering process, where features had to be
rebuilt to tight tolerances based on the scan data?

If so, I can understand why it would cost that
much. But if all you need is a surface scan and
your tolerances aren't too critical, then the
Roland LPX-series laser scanners might be
something that would solve your problem. Objects
the size you mention would fit in the LPX-60;
there's also a LPX-600 that's bigger. The LPX-60
lists for $7995, but I could give you a better
deal on one. Or, alternatively, you could send me
your parts for scanning - I typically charge about
$200 for a scan done on the LPX-600.]
