Would this work?

http://www.shu.ac.uk/research/meri/gmpr ... _scan.html

Simply taking a picture with lines projected on one's face so that the computer can interpret the distorted lines (due the shape of one's face) and then converted to 3D vectors.

Any thoughts?

There are a number of different technologies out there that will do what you are after ranging from moderately good for moderate dollars to very good for lots of dollars. A few years ago I researched this area and I am providing some links below from that research. No doubt there are more systems out there now so you may want to get google working on finding them. If you do try any of the programs please let us know what you thought of them.

I hope this helps.

...and http://www.inspeck.com/products/3dcaptu ... pturor.asp ...and a whole lot of other places too. It CAN be done...but the real question is: Is there a real market for people's faces. At 1st glance you would think so, but this isn't always the case.

Not long ago there were a bunch of kiosks w/3D cameras that did just what you described on Ebay. They bought a dozen of these things and couldn't get their money out of them with their business model/product, so they put them up for sale.

I neglected this for over a year and people still ask for something like it. Is there a market for it? I hope so, some say there is. Personally I am just a person that work with the manufacturing products but I'm not much of an idea person or marketing.

Do you know if they still have equipment for sale online?

This is an STL provided by the company. I imported it to artcam.
I reduced the Z Height of the face so its practical to engrave on a a piece of medal.

No sculpting involved.
