Where are we at with 3D scanners ? Is there anything on the market for under a 500 pounds that will do a good job. I am thinking of replicating old model train parts (4mm/OO gauge).
NOTE : I am aware that there may be copyright issues involved but let us leave that aside for the moment. I want to know how good the current scanners are.

What about something like 123D Catch from Autodesk? I have used the drawing component of that series with some success.
It may be slated for replacement by the Fusion 360 suite.

I think you need over-size models if you ar going to print with a 3D printer as the printers are better than the scanners.

It may be worth looking at 'David' **LINK**
It's more commercial now, than when I first saw it.
[sorry, I lost interest when I found out it was Windows based]
Here is an Australian supplier: **LINK**
