Small-scale accurate scanner

Hello rpml-brain. I wish I had a scanner for small (<10cm) things at
high (.1mm) accuracy, but I don't have much (<$1000) budget. Convex
only is OK, I can do without undercuts, but accuracy is important: .5mm
won't do.

The closest I've seen is stuff like this:
But there's many a slip twixt the kick and the start, and while several
of these have been launched, I don't see one in my budget that's
actually shipping. And most of them work on regular light, not a laser,
which makes me think they'll give blog-quality rather than CAD-quality

Anyone know of something that exists?

PS yeah it would be really nice if messages on this list had the list
address somewhere. Right now it doesn't appear anywhere that
Thunderbird can display, and I had to look up an old message to write this.
