So my scanner was kicking my butt today. While I was updating and going through new settings it had a 3D object/irregular object pre-set option. It didn't work because my scanner HP 8600 Pro cant do scans. But when I hovered over the setting I noticed that the 3d Object option is only supported by HP TopShot printers. Looks like they are doing 3D scanning.

Anyone seen these or used them? Thoughts?

After a ton of research and some help from this thread I picked up a HP 8300 off ebay last week. I have to say, I'm very pleased with the scans.

Here's a scan:

Any scanner should let you save the file directly to whatever drive you have connected to the computer... unless you're suggesting that you want to plug a flash drive directly into the scanner and bypass using a computer altogether. If this is not impossible (which I think it IS) then it's certainly not practical.
Yeah, I would like to bypass the computer all together. I would like to pay someone I trust to do the scans, however, the person I have in mind does not have a computer (long story). I have an all in one that will scan directly to a flash or usb drive and bypass the computer but it's huge and I don't want to lug it around. I'd prefer a flatbed. The scanning speed is also important since I'll be paying someone. I'm willing to pay more for a faster scanner but it is really hard to tell from the manufacturers information how fast they really are. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I know someone who paid more for his scanner than it cost for his books to be slabbed!

Anyone try the Xerox DocuMate 515 Flatbed Fast Simplex ADF ColorScanner? I'm looking for a new scanner that can scan slabs with a budget of <$200. I found this one on Amazon:

Link

It looks a little big and seems to have more bells and whistles than I need, but it's 58% off! The reviews on this one are somewhat mixed but it'd be helpful if anyone had experience using this or any other similar Xerox scanner.

I've said this before, but I found a very reliable legal size scanner at a local Goodwill / Thrift shop just over a year ago.

Actually I found 2... both identical although one was used and the other, new in the box. For the both of them, I think I paid under $15.00.

Microtek ScanMaker E3 Plus (Parallel Port Interface)

And a sample...

I'm sure this has been asked before but.... Are portable pen scanners adequate for scanning slabs?

I used to have a Microtek ScanMaker X12USL which I absolutely loved. The problem was that I upgraded to windows Vista and the scanner was no longer compatible. I emailed the company a few times with no response for two weeks. When they finally e-mailed me back, all they told me was that they would not be creating new drivers to support the scanner.

I asked if there were any alternatives and they told me to go back to using Windows XP.

I vowed never to use another Microtek scanner.
