RE: [MORPHMET] HDI 3D Structured-Light Scanners

Thanks Thomas! I wanted to make sure it is worth the investment. I usually use 
3dMD for faces (soft-tissue), but may need to scan bones and/or material 
culture too and 3dMD doesn't handle those items well.



Thanks again,



John

Hi John,
Yes,  I have a lot of experience with the Hdi scanners, both the fixed 
calibration and adjustable ones.  They are great for archaeological 
material/bones (I've literally scanned thousands,  as have my colleagues at 
Cambridge,  Bradford and TBI in Kenya)  and I've had good success with scanning 
articulated skeletons too.
They're actually made by LMI technologies,  who are Canada based.

I'm more than happy to send through samples as well, if anyone needs.  I'm in 
the process of sorting out a gallery got my website as well.

All the best,

Hello everyone,



Do any of you (or anyone you know) have experience with one of the HDI 3D 
Structured-Light Scanners? I am curious how well they work for imaging objects 
(skulls, pots), people, and children who wont sit still for morphometric 
research. http://www.3d-microscribe.com/HDI%203D%20Scanner%20Page.htm



The videos and stats on these models make them look great, but I wanted to 
check with someone who has actually used one before.



Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.



Thanks,



John
