So I'm getting a quote [1], need a few pieces of information:

1. What software will people be using to work with the results of any scans?

2. Desired format (mesh/STL, NURBS surfaces, reverse engineered)?

3. What are the file name extensions associated with those formats?

4. Accuracy required (eg how many significant digits)?

5. What is your end goal for the scan model?

(For 5, perhaps just "We have intellectual property rights to our
current case, but no 3D model. We need a 3D model to help to design
the next generation of case.")

Also, anyone have a broken Ben Nanonote or two they'd like to donate
to the cause? If so email me off-list.
