Affordable Scanners?

Are there any affordable 3d scanners that are ready for serious use? I’d like to scan some taillights and other car parts to reproduce on my printer. Not huge pieces but I need pretty fine detail and the scans need to be dimensionally accurate.

It seems that anything under $1000 has bad reviews, or is more of a novelty.

Have I missed anything? Or should I keep waiting for the technology to get better and cheaper?

Hi there,

For budget I would recommend something like the Cr-Scan ferret, it connects to your phone and can scan small-medium sized things pretty well. Plus it is a great price at only around $450 cad.

Hopefully this is helpful!
