3D Scanning Oversized Parts with the ES360
3D scanning can be used for a variety of applications. But what do you do when the application calls for scanning a very large part? The ES360 is equipped with two scan modes to accommodate both small and large scanning needs: fully automatic mode for smaller objects (7.8” cubed) and free/manual scan mode for larger objects (2.3’ cubed). On occasion, however, it may be necessary to automatically scan oversized parts (meaning they exceed the maximum factory recommendation) on the turntable. This article guides you on how to extend the scan range to handle such scans. Operating in Continuous Scan Mode The ES360 3D scanner has a function called “Continuous Scan.” [Read more…]
Five Tips to Help Your 3D Scanning
Want to make sure your 3D scans turn out as crisp as possible? Make sure to follow these five tips! Set up your projector properly The projector should appear as Monitor 2 in the Screen Resolution window. The projector is an active monitor on your PC – opening other windows on, or moving windows to, Monitor 2 will interfere with scanning. Monitor 2 should be set to these parameters: – Resolution: 800 x 600, minimum – Orientation: Landscape – Multiple Displays: Extend these displays – Refresh Rate: 60 Hz – Monitor 2 must be to the right of Monitor 1, with the tops of the two aligned Check your display [Read more…]
