HOW TO SCAN SYMMETRICAL OBJECTS

How to scan geometric patterns or symmetrical objects

The SOL software automatically meshes all scan passes, but for objects that have the same symmetrical patterns the software will need some additional reference points to help it along.

To stitch from different angles into one seamless model. SOL 3D capturing software uses feature detection and calibration tracking to understand which geometric points go where.

 

To help the 3D scanning process we suggest that you place an odd-shaped object next to symmetrical object during the scan (as shown below). Then the software will be able to distinguish the sides of the symmetrical object from each other.
