Sorry about the blank email....
I have a suggestion for scanning your aircraft, or any large bodied
surface of a vehicle or the like. What about using a digitizer? Here
at NJIT we have a Microscribe 3DX digitzer (www.microscribe.com) which
we use for for reverse engineering complex surfaces. It directly
interfaces with a software called Rhinoceros (www.rhino3d.com), which
allows us to create and manipulate using the digitized data. It sure
beats plastering and then laser scanning. Digitizing would be a one
step solution. Please let me know if this is possible for your
application. I would love to share more info with you.
