    If you care about the text of your object, you can use my linear scan technique to produce the UV map. Here is an example with my face. http://www.ctyeung.com/flex/swift/cup.html

    Just put your object on a turn table and record a video with your existing web camera.
    My video2panorama will merge all the center slices to produce a panorama photo which can then be used as a UV map. OK, you will need to do some processing for triangles that are not normal to the camera.

    Maybe Soon you can tell us how to make a more portable 3-D Scanner using a Smartphone cam or Sony Handy Cam and a Laser Pointer and the Free Software. This would be extremely useful and handy for those on the go. Thanks this is very impressive and helpful/useful .

    The Absent Game

    Involving me and my husband we’ve owned extra MP3 gamers over the years than I can count, such as Sansas, iRivers, iPods (basic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few many years I’ve settled down to one line of players.
