Reproduction of museum objects

Stephen Fowles mentioned in his response to Marie Esteva's query
that he was employing a laser scanning technique to obtain a
three-dimensional surface maps of museum objects.  I was wondering
if he or anyone else on the DistList has had experience employing
this technique on objects with highly lustrous surfaces, e.g. glass
or highly polished metal.  Is accurate mapping possible, or does the
nature of the surface create unacceptable laser scatter?
