Which software do you guys use to 3D scan real objects?

HP Recommended
3D Scanner 450
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hello everyone,,

here's a question somewhat related to this sub's theme.

I just started working professionally with 3D printing and after a long time not researching this specific part of the process I am finding myself far behind and uneducated.

What happened to all the free softwares for generating mesh data from photos? What's currently regarded as the best/fastest? My bosses are willing do spend some money, but the options I find online all range betweem 700 to 5000 dollars...

I use the free option (with a limit of 50 photos in one project) of 3DF Zephyr Free. 

The paid version does not have such restrictions and, in my opinion, is one of the best (from affordable) programs of this level.
Yes, it is inferior to such programs as Agisoft Metashape or Bentley Context Capture both in speed and in recognition of photographs - but this is completely insignificant if you look at the prices of these high-end products.

But I do not know if there is a 32bit version (I use Win10x64)
