Microscribe with Rhino for CNC application

Please forgive me if this has already been discussed.

Anyone out there using a Microscribe for reverse engineering to create a solid or nurb surface to use in a CAM system. I am looking to purchase a Microscribe M series 6 axis for Cylinder Head digitizing, i was told that Rhino has the capability to take the point cloud and create a solid or nurb that is machinable. I have the CAM system already and i do the machining in house currently and looking to bring the digitizing in house as well.

Any input would be appreciated.


Quick forums search:

3d digitizers aren’t very accurate. I think 0.010 - 0.020 is pretty normal.
For most mechanical objects, using calipers and a height gauge to just manually model the object will be far more accurate.

For more organic shapes, a 3d digitizer can be quite handy.
