Dear Ariadne Thank you so much for your kind response and excuse my delayed reply. I´m using an Artec Space Spide scanner. I´m doing some tests following several of the guidelines here suggested. For lithic tools some reflecting surfaces typical of some raw materials like chert produce some errors but is just a matter of test. Thanks again for your advice.
