A student came to me a few days ago saying that his advisor wants him to do
a project involving dental applications of RP. He gave me a set of dentures
and asked how much it would cost to have them laser scanned and converted
into a surface model. There are plenty of service bureaus that will do this,
but there must be an existing database out there where he can download a
model - either for free or for less money than having a new set scanned and
doesn't need a CAD model of that exact set of dentures. Any set of teeth
will serve his purposes.
