    The way they do so is to place the objects to be "photographed" on the scanning surface and cover with thick cloth. Then do normal scan. The results can be quite nice with flowers etc because of the very high resolution and relatively even lighting.

    Quite an interesting concept.
    With the right mods the result could be quite good.

    Time, is an effortless construction :)
