How accurate is POP?
A: The POP can output up to 0.3mm accuracy.
What’s the resolution?
A: 64000 points per frame.
Why is the accuracy of POP **higher than Others? **
What 's the principle of POP adopted?
Why is POP better than photogrammetry (free) with phone / camera + software and scanner made from Kinect, Realsense and Lidar？
A: The POP adopts dual camera + unique microstructured light technology, which can output a much higher precision accuracy and obtain good details, very easy to use. However, the photogrammetry （Scan by apps on phones ） scanning process is very time-consuming and has low accuracy. Similarly, the model obtained by Kinect has almost no details. Pop is the first consumer-grade price, professional-grade data 3D scanner.
You can download our models from Sketchfab at Revopoint3d (@Revopoint3d) - Sketchfab and view more videos on our YouTube channel to check the accuracy and details.
Could you please describe how does the quality compare with iPhone’s LIDAR?
A: POP has higher accuracy than LIDAR, we are more professional, please refer to the models POP scanned at Revopoint3d (@Revopoint3d) - Sketchfab
Q1: W hat’s the accuracy of 0.3mm on pop’s product page referring to? Like the smallest detail that it can scan or is the dimensional accuracy of the scan to the actual product?
A: Accuracy, in fact, refers to how close to the actual object we have come in creating its virtual copy. It’s the dimensional accuracy of the scan to the actual product. And the accuracy dimension is measured by specialized measurement instruments.
please refer to the models POP scanned at Revopoint3d (@Revopoint3d) - Sketchfab
Is the 0.3mm resolution achievable?
A: Yes, POP could reach each parameter we promised.
What is the resolution of the depth sensor?
A: The depth camera resolution is 1280×800.

What’s the difference between the accuracy of 0.1mm (CR-Scan 01) and 0.3mm (POP)?
A: POP can reach the 0.1mm accuracy we promised; and for further information about POP and CR-Scan 01, Please refer to products review at Which one is the best 3d scanner under $1000? Creality CR Scan 01 or Revopoint POP? - YouTube
C an I obtain a better scanning result if I scan more frames?
H ow many frames that I can scan/take to get a better-quality model?
Is there a limit on how many frames that I can scan/take to get a better quality model?
A: Scanning repeatedly can’t help the accuracy, only a closer scan distance can improve it.
Scanning one round at each part of the object will get a better result.
And the scan frames differ from objects. The larger the object is, the more frames it probably needs.
Is there a fully manual mode in the software? Like a mode where I can change various settings in order to try to get the best possible model that the pop is capable of?
A: No. For parameters （Exposure & Gain） adjusting, it’s Anto first, then Manual. There is no fully manual mode, but we will open more to users in the near future. If any suggestions, please send messages to Forum at https://forum.revopoint3d.com/
W hat’s the function of GRB and Home buttons?
A: RGB is for reviewing color/no-color models;
Home is for backing model to the middle of the 3D preview window.

A: The working principle of POP is not same as that of taking a photo, so a gimbal can use in POP scanning.
What ’ s the computer configuration for use the software? And GPU?
CPU: better to use i5 or above
RAM：4G or above
Operating System： Windows 8 /10
The integrated display card is fine, and it doesn’t require a discrete graphics card.
The POP scanner has powerful processing functions and has no special requirements for the performance of the computer or mobile phone CPU/GPU.
Will POP scanner run on power from the laptop USB connection?
A: This is exactly how POP is powered. You need to plug it to a USB3.0 interface to power the POP and transfer the data.
Does Revopoint use USB 2.0 or USB 3.0+?
A: POP Scanner works with 5V 1A, but USB 2.0 cannot output enough power the POP scanner needs. And we have mobile connector for Android users to meet the POP’s working requirement.
Why does POP need to use USB 3.0 port?
A: Because the power consumption of POP is 5V 1A, and its minimum required power supply is 4.8V, 800mA. (While the output of 2.0 interface is 5V 500mA, and the output of USB 3.0 is 5V 1A.)

A: Handy Scan. The application is included with the product and is free to use.
Do you have User Manual and Software in French?
Yes. User Manuals and software in Italian, French, Spanish, German and Japanese are all available now.
What’s the difference between Mobile Connector and a standard splitter?
A: The Mobile Connector is customized for the POP 3D scanner.
POP needs to be powered with 5V and 1A, while most smartphones are not allowed to output an enormous power for an external device, such as a POP 3D scanner. To resolve the problem, we introduce the mobile connector.
The mobile connector provides two mini cables: one is to a phone via tape C for data transmission, and the other is to a power bank to power the POP scanner, which ensures mobile scanning and stable data transmission.
**Is there any difference in quality or other restrictions between scanning over usb-a, usb-c or wifi?
A: Wi-Fi connection and USB connection has no difference, and PC scan and Phone scan may differ because of the RAM.
Can the POP and Phone be connected by only one Type C cable?
A: Android phones can scan 3d Models via both Wi-Fi and USB connection.
After testing, we find that the following phones can scan via one cable: Huawei Mate 40/Huawei Mate 30/Huawei P 40/Huawei P 30/Huawei Nova 6/Xiaomi 10/Xiaomi Mix 3; (The phones are only representatives of some tested ones.)
But the Samsung and Sony phones don’t allow a high-power output for an external device, which can’t meet the POP’s work requirement of 5V and 1A. They can be connected to POP scanner via Wi-Fi mode, and the POP scanner is powered by a power bank.
If you want to connect your Samsung or Sony phones via USB cables, please go to our online store to buy a mobile connector.
W hat are the indicators that a one-cable configuration doesn’t work?
(1) POP restarts repeatedly: the indicator light keeps changing from blue to green;
(2) After starting the POP, it freezes repeatedly during scanning.
(3) The “Lose Tracking” notice appear frequently.
Is there a particular phone that is compatible and outputs 10,000mAh that you know of that would work as an option? Ideally something inexpensive as it would be used for this purpose only.
A: Yes. Hua Wei, Xiaomi
Where can I see more 3D models scanned by POP?
A: We’ve updated 3D models on Revopoint3d (@Revopoint3d) - Sketchfab.
Where c an I see more User Manual, User Guide and Tutorials?

What can a Turntable help ?
A: An automatic turntable can help a lot to the scanning of most of the small and medium-size objects.
Is the scanner connected to the turntable so the speed of the turntable is controlled by the complexity of the object being scanned?
A: The turntable is not connected to the scanner. The turntable rotates at the preset speed, we don’t recommend changing it.
How much weight can the turntable handle?
A: 5 kg
Where c an I buy the Auto Turntable?
A: Yes! You can buy it on Revopoint official store at REVO. Auto Turntable for POP – Revopoint 3D

A: The turntable is not synced with the POP 3D scanner and you can use any turntable without problem.
Is the iOS cable available now?
A: We are working on the certification of MFI. For more progress, we will let you know.
What is the Marker mode?
A: When scanning some objects (such as ball, industrial parts) with simple shape features, you can stick the markers to the object randomly, and the POP will stitch each part according to the markers.
What is the purpose of the marker?
A: This is used to scan the objects with no geometric features. Flat planes like a board or symmetrical objects like balls or bowls are usually suitable to this mode. Please note that when you stick the makers to the surface, the markers should not be evenly distributed because the scanner must identify the unique pattern consisting of a cluster of adjacent makers.
Q1: Are markers removable for reusable later?
Q2: Are the dot stickers to provide a better reference for the scanner on planar surfaces to join nearby points to?
A2: Yes. It’s for stitching/registration/alignment. When scan objects with simple features, use markers and select Marker scan mode.
How is the LED light?
A: Basically, with the LED light’s help, the model’s texture color will be more uniform and vivid, and the details will be more apparent. Human scanning will also be better, as LED light can avoid the poor effect that appears dark on one side and bright on the other side.
Is the LED light battery-powered or USB-rechargeable?
A: The LED light is battery powered, and rechargeable by Type C.
What are the specs on the video light - is it IR or visible?
A: It is normal visible light (D5500), which will help to get better color texture for the scanned 3D model. For details, you can refer to product page at REVO. VL Rechargeable Mini LED Light – Revopoint 3D

A: It depends on the RAM of a PC/Smartphone; you can fuse these scanned frames first, then continue scanning.
Which kind of object you would like to scan with POP? We probably can provide some help for your scanning.
Is the amount of RAM on the android device a determining factor on whether the software can be downloaded and or it crashes on start up? Can a 2RAM phone work? (Q&A43)
A: Yes. The RAM of an android device need to be at least 4RAM. Actually, it’s hard to find a mid-range android smartphone with less than 4GB RAM…
What’s the reason for constant disconnect and reconnect on USB 3.0?
A: The possible reason of constant connect & disconnect may be: insufficient voltage or insufficient current.
Most of the USB 2.0 interfaces have insufficient current, which leads to unrecognized or repeated disconnection. For some computers, the USB 3, 0 hardware interface voltage does not reach the 3.0 standard, which may also cause continuous disconnection.
Why POP is connected firstly, then disconnected?
A: It indicates insufficient power supply via the USB cable.
If the pop scanner works (indicator shows in green), but the optical device does not work; the power supplied is 5v, 300mA;
If the pop scanner works, and the optics works, the power supplied is 5V*800mA~1000mA;
When the power is above 5v, 300mA， but doesn’t reach 5V*800mA~1000mA, the above condition occurs.
In this case, you need to check the USB interface or check your PC interface; If all is OK, power the POP scanner with a power bank and connect POP scanner to Phone via Fi-Fi mode; if POP scanner works, it indicates that the scanner is OK.
What power output should the power bank have in connecting wirelessly?
A: It should be: USB A connector, Voltage: 5V, Current: >1A
How do I produce an STL file Using the android App?
A: we have updated a new version, please download the latest Android version.
When I use software Handy Scan in combination with Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC phone (by USB-C wire), the camera keeps disconnecting after a few seconds. Why it that and what I should do?
A: Some phones don’t support high-current power supply to external devices. For these devices’ users, we suggest that you use Wi-Fi mode and it is very convenient.
Our engineer tested some devices, and found that Samsung & Sony phones are not supported, while HUAWEI Mate & P series & Nova series, Xiaomi phones usually support USB Mode of POP. (We just tested several models, so this is not all phones’ result)
If some backers really want to use USB mode, we developed an accessory called mobile connector on Amazon and our online store Mobile Connector – Revopoint 3D.
My POP scanner can’t work with my Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G phone. Every time it’s asking for permission and then I see the camera for a second and then the program is crashing.
A: Samsung phone could not supply enough power for POP SCANNER connected by USB cable. Please connect a power bank to supply power for POP scanner, and connect POP scanner to your Samsung phone by Wi-Fi mode.
There are instructions you can follow: https://www.revopoint3d.com/support/supportpop/

How can I save a fused mesh on MacOS?
Whatever I do, (PLY, OBJ, STL) I only get the point cloud… what am I doing wrong?
How is the tracking, does it lose tracking often?
A: While scanning objects with multiple features, the POP works smoothly, rarely losing track. And for human scans, practice makes perfect. If you are skilled, the scanning frame will not be lost.
If it shows" Track Lost", please back to the scanned area for realignment.
How does it scan things with sharp edges, does it smooth them over?
A: POP is a high-precision 3D scanner and while scanning, plenty of details can be captured: the closer you are, the more details you can get. So, I recommend you scanning objects with sharp edges at a closer distance of around 200 mm to 250 mm to require more details.
Are colored scans really that terrible, is that why most Revopoint’s scans were not textured?
A: Users are able to get good color models with POP (before scanning, people can select “Color” or “No Color” in Texture), and You can download the color model at Revopoint3d (@Revopoint3d) - Sketchfab
Most printer users are more concerned about the details of the shape than the color.
How can I scan: Honoré de Balzac, Bust. Original is 149mm tall (the white resin part), and get 0.3mm accuracy?
A: you shall move POP to be closer to Bust. Scanning repeatedly can’t help the accuracy, only a closer scan distance can improve it.
