Digital Fab Lab / Digitizer
The Microscribe Digitizer allows one to create points in Rhino based off of a physical model. The working volume is approximately 20" x 20" x 30".
To activate the digitizer within Rhino, use Tools > 3-D Digitizer > Connect then select MicroscribeDigitizerSupport. You will be promted to enter an X and Y axis and specify a point in your Rhino file to match the origin of the digitized area. You can then use the digitizer as you would a mouse.
