The problem with plastidip is that it's thick and distorts the dimensions and sharp feature of the part you are trying to scan. Ideally with scanning spray you want a very light dusting.

I completely agree - the other day I had to scan a large semi-precious stone for the ring (it has a not quite standard shape, and it was very difficult to measure everything exactly), and due to the absence of any spray, I smeared it with a white “corrector for correction text on paper "- at least the form turned out (which I needed), and the edges are poorly visible.

That"s the stuff I use. Works well. don't spray it on too heavy. it's easy to think you haven't sprayed enough, spray more and realize when it dries that you oversprayed. It can be then a bit difficult to get it completely off. It tends to like to stay in the nooks and cracks.

ive tried anti-fungal/athlete's foot spray that works really well for smaller scans and is cheap.

For larger scans, i use an automotive style HVLP paint gun with a mixture of baby powder and rubbing alcohol.

The alcohol evaporates immediately leaving the fine white powder behind. It only takes a light dusting to get great scans.

The only downside is washing or blowing the powder off when you are done.
