    Seems like I had seen this before, did a little googling... http://www.instructables.com/id/Buil...d-Calibration/

    Not knocking them for packaging it and selling it though, I like the idea of having one.

    I thought the same thing Darren There a ton of info and even the scanning software available. From my research the blue lasers produce more accurate scans than the red laser.

    Yeah there is one setback though you got to be able to print your own plastic parts so one needs a 3D printer in the first place. Though I guess there is someone out there that is probably selling 3D printed parts for it.

    Still something like this could be cool especially if one had a 3D printer to reproduce the item you scanned.
    Imagine making a series of scans of something that is growing and then printing the 3d model of each stage.

    I would have loved to scan my sons foot as a baby then toddler and so forth till the size 13.5 foot of today. Not much use to it but could make a fun evolution series. Lol

    If I had a 3D printer I'd spend the $100 and get one, but I don't have a 3D printer...... yet....

    That is pretty cool though. Would be almost a necessity if you had a 3d printer
