3D Images using a flat bed scanner

    I have seen a couple of sites recently where images of 3D objects (eg
    flowers) have been created using a flat bed scanner.
    The images appear exactly as if taken with a camera (with macro lens) ie no
    flat sections because it is sitting on a scanner.

    Images are crystal clear with white backgrounds etc.

    Can anyone explain how these images of 3D objects are created using a
    scanner?

    Any attempts to replicate this have turned out very ordinary.

    regards

    Thanks Mike.
    I have a Canon scanner with CIS - that would explain the poor quality scan
    of 3D objects.

  6. Nearly any scanner that does -=NOT=- use a lens system (such as the older
    Microtek legal size) will do a credible job on 3D items.
