No 3D Laser Scanner necessary.  With a standard digital camera you can take pictures around an object or scene and have it processed into a Point Cloud model.

This is interesting because it’s also an example of the the power of cloud computing.  Photos are uploaded to the cloud and are processed into a point cloud model.  There are some  photo shooting guidelines that have to be observed for a successful process.  Once processed a point cloud is sent to the

Photo Scene Editor.  The point cloud can then be exported to a DWG format and opened in AutoCAD.

Learn more and download the Photo Scene Editor at Autodesk Labs Project Photofly page.

The Photo Scene Editor executable will operate until August 1, 2011.
