I would suggest microCT for things that small especially, if you can get access 
to one or have the specimens ship to an imaging facility.
Resolution (and detail) will be far superior, and the amount of work you will 
do to convert the voxel data to surface models is going to be far less than 
stitching 3-4 (or more) acquisition together to get a decent coverage.

Subject: Re: [MORPHMET] Portable scanner for 3D models

Hello Carlos,

in my experience the only surface scanner which reconstructed in a decent way 
bat skulls is Breuckmann Laser Scan for small objects (model SmartSCAN R5/C5 
5.0). But I wouldn't consider it portable.
For Myotis species (in particular the small ones) you will need to take at 
least 3-4 acquisitions for each specimen and don't expect perfect results on 
teeth. But it's pretty good!!

If anyone has other suggestions on laser scans able to reconstruct bat skulls I 
would be very curious to know too.

Many thanks in advance

Giada

Hi ,
I am looking forward to create 3D models of small bats skull ( genus Myotis). 
Anyone has a good insight on portable 3d scanner for this task

Thanks
