I use photogrammetry a lot at work. If you don't know what that is the modern methods of it uses DSLR cameras with software for 3D point extraction and visualization. At work I photograph and model things that are geology or paleontology related.
Here is one side of a Gruen V4 pocket watch movement that you can turn and spin in a 3D space.
Will try to play around with this more in the next week or so...
