    […] tired of how long it takes to do your nurb modeling? then maybe a home 3D scanner from next engine is what you need. a small desktop scanner for $2,500. that’s pretty crazy! connects directly to you PC using a USB port. system includes an autopositioner and a parts gripper to help everything match up. having used a few 3d scanners before, this is impressive (if it works). you could always just spend a mere $70,000 to $240,000 on something more robust. link via futurefeeder.
