IMU works only during image capture FYI.

Just do one with color, and use that as your home scan world... Will make the rest level.
This works as suggested. However, if the tilt of the tripod changes at all the scans become unlevel.

I appreciate the suggestion.

Matt, not sure what you mean. The levelness of data in cyclone is set from a single scan (homeworld) . So you only need one that is level.

The IMU reading is taken during the photography, because it needs to be still and it needs multiple readings during rotation to average and get the best result. so unless it runs through the photography start stop turn procedure, no IMU reading will be applied and it's just based off how good you got your tripod leveled.

How do I lock the position of that first scan in Register 360, so that it doesn't tilt while I C2C it with other stations?

Thank you in advance,
Gio
