Re: 3D scanning

Clemson University has the technology to scan 3-d objects that exist in real space and digitize them then reproduce them in foam, wax, or stainless. Bqasically the techonology is based on a 3-d camera which scans the object and puts it in computer land and then it can be outputted ready for a cast. the technology is called Z-Cast, I would suspect that most research universities would have the technology although not in the art department, probably in the tech depts. Ours is in the center for environmental technology center. hope this helps
