David's Laser works well. I have done many instances of a video camera and laser pointer to create cloud point data. Fun.

Maker Faire or Make magazine is a great resource for this type of DIY laser imaging.

...back to the fun.

we also can put the scanner on the Mechmate, so besides a cnc router we can have a cnc scanner. I know it can be done, Just I have no time to do it.

A separate thread on laser scanning moved to Laser scanning (http://www.mechmate.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2835)
