Paper Targets on Windows

Post by MagicBrou » Tue Mar 14, 2017 2:55 pm

Hey Guys, i have a problem with registering severall Scans because i put Paper Targets on Windows and it seems, that the reflection went trough the Target/Window so i get 1cm Errors. is this normal? My thought was, to put in the middle of every Wall one Paper Target (But one side only had windows).

I would guess if the windows were clear and the angle not too shallow it should work to scan the target through the glass. But scanning at an angle through the glass would incur refraction.

Depending on how opaque or translucent your checkerboards are, the glass may only be contributing to another existing problem.
