I need some small (2" x 4") hardwood objects I carved by hand, scanned (digitized) so that i can replicate them with a CNC router.
Please tell me what your prices are and where you are located so that I can factor in shipping charges.
I would also like to know the resolution of the scanned point cloud.

I need an email address to send the pictures to. I can't seem to load them on here.
You might find it worthwhile to invest in a 3d scanner of your own. This would let you keep the whole process in-house, which would save a lot of time (and eventually money) over sending your pieces across the country for scanning. The Roland LPX-60 would be ideal for this sort of thing, with granularity (resolution) of .008"; I sell those laser scanners for $7975. I also offer scanning services; small objects like those you're describing generally cost about $200 each, although complex forms can cost more.
Thanks. I plan on starting with a digitizing probe and eventually working my way up to a laser scanner. I am just starting out and need to keep costs down. I will start with having a few pieces scanned and then mass produce them.
I've scanned some pretty intricate detail down to 1/2" components (0.0007" resolution, .0004" accuracy)
They actually have a free trial for a low cost 3D scanner. I've used it, and it works pretty well for small items. The key is a good focusing laser and a lot of patience.
I purchased the full license, and was happy with the quality, but found it a little slow. I have since moved on to structured light, which gets us far better results.
