Dark object scanning

I tried to scan this object and it doesn’t seem to work, is it too dark?

That black plastic object is just going to absorb infrared light and look invisible.

You’ll have to paint it or use a subliment on it

Mix baby powder in IPA and spray it onto the model, Once dried it will scan. After you just brush if off


For those living in the northwest :bulb:

IPA is NOT Indian Pale ale

It is Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA).



Exact. Do not waste IPA the beverage on this trick

Good tip, now I need a proper air brush pistol (had an old one, that performed poorly). I needed a proper one anyway, for painting fdm printed objects.

I used a spray bottle from the hardware store. Had on lying around and the nozzle was too small and got clogged
