Several people have asked me over the last few days to post some full length images of the California sword and a picture of the blade. Here you go. Nothing fancy - I just set it down on my desk and took a couple of shots.
I also used the 3D model of the sword to generate a cross section of the fullered section of the blade. I'm still learning how to use the software (as well as the scanner), but you can orient the model in a box and then have it generate splines that section the object wherever you want. I'm working with raw data, so the model still has "holes" in it (hence the incomplete blade edges on the extracted splines. But I think you can still get a pretty good sense of the contours of the fullers.
