High Detail Scanning on S350

Post by 3DForensics » Thu Oct 11, 2018 8:58 pm

I ran a quick project yesterday during a training course using 250mm spheres and a the new High Detail scanning feature that came with the latest firmware update. The setup was very basic...two 1/8 res scans situated at about 60m apart from one another. Under any other circumstance, this would not be simple to register but we were able to capture three spheres in both scans at high resolution and with very good registration results.
I'll need to test this some more but it brings a lot of efficiencies to the table when scanning very large expanses like wide open fields or long, straight stretches of roadway.

Hi all

We too have recently been testing this with equally good results.

It is a great feature and will allow greater distance between scans where required. Checkerboards can be scanned at longer distances to allow for greater distribution of targets to increase confidence levels when using survey control.
