Hi Callie, 

Are you using the old NextEngine or the Ultra? Since you are scanning at a 
small distance, make sure your scan setting is set to macro. Try fewer 
divisions, around 8--too many divisions for small objects causes the 
auto-alignment to not work. The NextEngine also has a hard time aligning 
flat objects, so if the scans don't align within ScanStudio, you might have 
to export them to Meshlab and align them. You can email me directly if you 
want some help with Meshlab.
