If you are looking into an DIY alternative to the Revopoint 3D scan markers you may find those: 3D Scanning Marker - Avery Etiketten 3490 - A4.pdf - Google Drive useful. Designed to be printed with Avery 3490 self-adhesive labels. Each DIN A4 sheet will yield 432 markes which habe to be cut out individually.
Tested with Revopint mini, working reliably.
Sounds like you need a Cri-cut or a Cameo Silhouette to cut out all those dots.
Might be able to use these also - https://www.amazon.com/AVERY-Zweckform-Diameter-Self-Adhesive-Permanent/dp/B08QRRLXWW
Just an example, may be cheaper elsewhere.
Wonder if I could cut these with my new laser cutter/engraver…Might be fun to try! Just use a blank sticker sheet…have to change it to our weird american system but that would be fine…
Unfortunately, this doesn’t work for me - neither with the Mini nor the Pop 2. Markers are not recognised - perhaps due to using an inkjet printer (3rd party ink Brother JW series)? Do you guys use lasers?
I am using a laser for printing … curious to understand if the choice of the printer should have any influence …
It have , because inject print is visible to Infrared laser and laser reflect it .
Same as black cotton (visible) vs black nylon ( invisible) for markers to work correctly the white dots need to be separate from the surface , so black inject printing can’t do that .
Again I have learned from you …
Correction: Actually, my inkjet printed markers work with the MINI (blue light) but not with a Pop 2 (infrared).
Perhaps using some reflective paint (liquid chrome) will help for the Pop 2.
Thanks for the update … in fact I have been using the markers on the Mini only so far … but with migrating to the POP2 I will have to check if marker printed with a laser printer will work for me …
That’s not exactly how it works .
The white dot need to be separate from the background to be recognized as a marker .
This mean the if you used yellow stroke for your MINI markers it would works too because MINI blue light is absorbed by yellow .
For POP2 use only backgrounds for the dots that are invisible .
For example you can throw some rice on a black plastic plate or plastic bag and it will be recognized as a markers …
So don’t think it needs to be exactly what they tell you it have to be .
It is not about the black color … it is about the property of the surface .
The point is to separate the white dot from the rest of your scanned object surface so the software can recognize it as a marker .
I had these old Avery floppy… stickers sheets laying around and did a test.
Laser printing and laser cutting works like a charm.
There will probably go 500 of these on an A4 Avery sticker sheet.
Both the Mini and Pop2 recognise the markers.
Now you can start your own marker production
Looks very good
Yes, I could
Laser scouring these sheets takes 2,5 minute per sheet, not really production numbers.
But for larger production numbers there are more cost efficiënt ways.
The test I did is more for people with acces to a laser cutter.
Love your idea and will test myself (during holidays) …
just found this on Amazon, ordered, will tell you. Compatible Cricut
Here the link
Interesting, looking forward hearing from you how it works.
