When it comes to 3D scanning, a perfect surface looks a lot like the image above: thousands of distinctive and random features, high contrast, no blurred areas and no glossy stains. When most objects No. Nice to meet you, it’s possible to get results anyway, and that’s it [Thomas] The goal is to help people with his tips on how to create a perfect, accurate 3D scan with the help of photogrammetry.
3D scanning in general is far from as simple as “point boxes, press buttons”, but there are tools available to make things easier. Good lighting is important, polarizers can help, and products like chalk sprays can temporarily add matte properties to problematic, glossy or featureless objects. [Thomas] Each of these provides visuals, so one can get an idea of exactly what each of these elements brings to the table. There is even a simple flowchart table that helps solve problems and improve complex scan situations.
[Thomas] In the case of 3D scanning, he knows his things when he is behind the OpenScan project We last saw the OpenScan feature back in 2020 and since then things have definitely moved forward with a new design, the OpenScan Mini. Interesting in an open-source scanning solution? Be sure to give it a look.
