Re: How is everyone doing with their Ciclop?

man this all sounds extremely tedious, under what circumstances would scanning be better than simply taking measurements and modeling the object from scratch? seems like you would have to go through a similar amount of work and you are likely going to get a more accurate result (plus you could repli...
