We have an Xbox Kinect that we use for human scale things and a Next Engine
scanner for small stuff. The Next Engine requires a very good
understanding of how the scanner works and how to best use it to accomplish
what you want. I learned how to use it at engineering school and through
friends. The software will crash but on a computer with a fast processor
and a ton of RAM it does work. It's definitely not a magic machine that
will make solid models for you with no effort, I usually instruct our
members that a first time using it will take 8+ hours, and subsequent uses
will halve that number as you get better as using their software and
This was scanned in on our Next Engine on medium resolution, the loss of
detail isn't from the scanner, the injection molded part was that bad:
