A local customer send me a blue ceramic rabbit as attached picture , he request to copy as 1/2 size , 3d print to him for reference , I am thinking he should use it to make as toys .

blue rabbit (1) -1 blue rabbit (2) -2I am the first time to handle such stuffs , you can see the reflection on rabbit body is big , most of 3D scanner can not scan reflect items like metal , glass , liquid etc., I try to find ideas from scanner maker , it is lucky that they just find out a solution to scan . See below pics , I am scanning the blue rabbit !

Rabbit is set on the round plate , which is able to rotate 360 degree by hand or electrical power ( motor inside ) , use a special design portable hand-held 3d scanner to scan , I suppose they use Kinect technology and enhance it . ( For some reason I can not display that 3D scanner here , but it is not expensive ! )

After scanning , there is still some stuffs on 3D model , I have to use Geomagic to remove it !
