Scanning 3D objects.......
That particular scanner isnt for sale anymore and I was just wondering if anyone had any knowlege of which scanners are best for 3D things?
I have a cannon scanner at the moment but it has literally no depth of field which means I cant use it for what I want...........there is never any info about depth of field when im looking at scanners, but I have heard Epson is the way to go....
Any ideas? I also dont have a lot to spend on one but i reckon I could strech to £400-£500..
I have also attached an example of the type of work that I have been doing. It is supposed to be viewed really really big but you will get the idea.
Re: Scanning 3D objects.......
Epson 3170 Perfection Photo is what I use "for everything." Everything has included: eggplant, apple and a few other 3D objects. I don't think you're going to get "great" depth from any flatbed scanner though. I got the original idea for scanning fruit (the example was a strawberry) from a UK-based Photoshop magazine.
Now you got me interested again - I left off just about the time I started to understand that it's the level & depth of illumination "on" the scanned object which could be enhanced (possibly with auxiliarylighting) to provide more depth.
