I am looking for information on any software, hardware, papers, etc
which solves the problem of converting a 3D model of an object into
a electronic 3D database.
As an example, if I build in my ba*t a new IMPROVED mousetrap and
then what to generate a set of engineering drawings for manufacturing
or a 3D database for running simulation software, how do I do it?
1) I could take photos from the different angles then enter points by
hand into the computer.
- Is there software or tools for doing this better?
2) Buy a 3D digitizer and scan it in.
- This still seems too expensive.
Any other ideas!
Please response by email and I will summarize the ideas and comments on
the net later.
