I would like to get a 3d object into the computer as the first step before working on it (virtually) and later making a physical sculpture out of it.
Does anyone know how to scan (for instance, I need a static image of a man in the process of walking from a live model)? what are the technologies available? how about dynamic images, i.e. moving 3d objects? what are the keywords to find a company doing that in your city? what are the costs? what are the most common file types this info comes in (vrml?)? who has experience with that kind of stuff?
thanks for your time!
