also DAVID can save as STL. In the Save form, where you name the file, you can choose OBJ, STL or PLY in the dropdownlist

No, not yet. You´ve to do several scans of several sides with enough overlapping area. Now you can make them match in Shapefusion and fuse them to one finally.

The PRO (=paid) version allows to scan and save in much higher resolution. Also you can not save the result of SHAPEFUSION in the FREE version.
