The displacemnt map only covers half the object but I wonder if you can make one of each half and then combine. It saids that the code can import into blender, and I would assume that blender can produce the STL files necessary for Darwin. But thats only an assumtion

Even though 3D scanning sounds like an afterthought now, I think when the dust settles it will be an important feature to a useful fabber.

It's not an afterthought, its been bounced around quite a bit. It is 3D scanning that brought me to reprap. I found the scanning articles and started fanning out and looking at the methods and got some ideas about how they worked. Then I sat back, well 3d models are all very good, but what do I do when I have a model. And this was the answer that I found to that question.

Rather than filling the bath you could rotate the object on a horizontal axis. That would get both halves, pretty much the same as the laser and turntable method but you have replaced the laser with milk and the turntable with a spit.
