    Hi There,

    I am looking for a 3D Scanner for animation and CG. Anyone has any advice in what I should be looking for? Product recommendations?

    Thanks in advance,

    How detailed? There is some software out there called David 3D Scanner that does basic scans. Otherwise, I think there was a guy on the site that had access to a scanner.

    In September, I will have access to a scanner (for free + my time[cheap] ) so let me know if I can help you out.

    I have a NextEngine(http://www.nextengine.com/). It works great for some stuff, not great for other stuff. Thin features are tricky to capture and holes in things cause problems too. Objects with lots of general roundness to them made out of clay scan great. Here's a fabric dog toy(well, my grandparents let their dog play with it) that I scanned with it and shrunk down: http://www.shapeways.com/model/122439/taco_dog.html
