Although plasticine looks non-transparent, in my experience it does cause some light scattering, especially the lighter stuff.

I scanned a model head made from whitish plasticine and noted a definite diffusion of the laser line on the plasticine part compared to the eyes, which I had painted with a matt white enamel paint.

It's possible this may be contributing to the noise.

Im sure youve done this but make sure you calibration point scale is set to the correct number. I got noisy results one time when I forgot to set it. Thats about all I can think of for now. Luckily if it is the laser thats about the cheapest fix.

I appreciate the suggestions, just ordered a new laser line from ebay (the one suggested) If that doesn't work, I'll try a new cam (I'm quite persistant) :roll:
