Re: Object scanning

Nope; just my HP All-in One (psc 2110v). I just wish they can develope a camera that can give you details that a scanner can, but I guess the scanner can give you the details because the object absolutely doesn't move and the light is the best that can be done. Still, if they can make a scanner camera (I know all the pet projects out there with not so good results; lol) that can scan both quickly and accurately, we would be in nirvana.

Re: Object scanning

I know I have added far more than my fair share of comments to this thread. Just a few hints, tightly written and wrapped in a bow.
1. The beauty and the nature of the beast ie; scanner as it has "0" depth of field therefore sharp from beginniing to end. Try adding frosty types of material in the air during the scan. I like to use a piece acetate sprayed with hairspray. I also sometimes put black or white orn any other colors where I want them. I have a small section of my flickr storage but this truly is a direction that if you take the turn down the road who knows where you might end up. It has great potential.

Sweetlight, 'I like to use a piece acetate'

I sprayed a little soapy water between two sheets of acetate and then applied a gradient, black-rgb-white. Thanks for the tip.
