3D Laser Scanning Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

I am curious if any of you out there are using 3D scanners to create 3D models?

I have been using a 3d laser scanner for the better part of the past year for various projects. If you aren't familar with this it is the process of using laser to scan the surface of a real world object to create a 3d mesh.

Here is a direct link to a recent scan I did of a Mexican Jaguar head carving.

I have scanned everything from Fossils to Star Wars toys to body parts!

While not a replacement for a 3D Artist or CAD engineer it certainly is a useful tool!

If you would like to download laser scanned meshes or just see what they look like head on over to

Looking forward to hearing your feedback!
