    Hi Mr. Culp,
    My inquiry is not related to this presentation. I have question related to “scanto3D” and seen some of your online contributions. Which by the way have been given very good insight. It would be great, if you have the time and drop me a quick email. I would like to discuss this “offline” with you.

    Thank you,
