Can I scan a car?

Diffuse objects are ideal for scanning, so a shiny car is probably going to give you a ton of problems. I'd recommend scanning a car with a proprietary scanner like this one - , or consider scanning a toy car where you can more easily control the lighting circumstances and mitigate the reflectance of car paint.
