Most efficient way(s) to scan smaller items with iPhone 12 pro max?

One of the reasons I purchased an iPhone 12 pro max this time around compared to an android phone was to mess around with the Lidar. I have used it successfully to create scans of rooms and larger scale items without issue, and the details are pretty good. While I have enjoyed the uses, I want to take it to the next level and actually scan AND print something. I have this car part that i’m working on that’s around 12″ long and around 6″ wide, and i’d like to be able to make it into an STL so I can make it taller.

Are people doing this yet? I know that all of it is possible, I can’t seem to create a scan of just the object itself and not the surroundings. Do I need some combination of devices to pull this off? Thank you.
