Do you have any experience with the NextEngine scanner they are using? As I understand it, typically it is sold with powerfull mesh-conditioning software that will give a manifold watertight mesh.

Several community members bought one and were experimenting with it. Their conclusions: The product is affordable but requires a lot of tweaking while scanning as well as manual modeling to repair the mesh so that you can print it out.

I'd love to have a 3D scanner myself but based on their advice I'll wait a bit.
