If I wanted to make a skin for a wall phone that fits exactly on top of it, how would I go about doing that. Is there any way to take a picture with a high def camera and then have the exact measurement of the phone? Im just thinking that that would be much easier and then I can start designing things on top of the skin and dripping down on the wall. Please help me with any advice you have thank you.

You can take pictures to make a model using 123D catch, but it will not have the dimensions. But you can then take a few dimensions, and scale the file accordingly.
