This has probably been hashed out in the past but I could not find the exact information. What is the difference between Fast and High Accuracy mode?
Also during a test scan using the FAST mode, I had good tracking using the “DARK” with “RGB” mode of a furry object (cat) but had 0% tracking using the “FEATURE” with “RGB” mode. Is the DARK mode using the RGB camera to help with tracking? Why is there such a difference in tracking accuracy between the different modes?
@PUTV thanks for the info. I wasn’t really trying to scan my cat per say, more along the lines of trying out the different modes since all I have used in the past was high accuracy and feature or marker mode. Most of the stuff I scan is for reverse engineering. But the cat was on the chair next to me and he has dark fur (orange and black rosettes) and seemed like a good “test subject”.
I guess what has confused me, is when I go to “fuse” the points, it still lets me process the model to .1mm accuracy. I would have figured that with the fast mode, it would have set the minimum default to .3mm if that is all that fast mode has to offer.
I will do some more testing, but it seems that most of the other modes are really targeted to scanning people.
Fusing point is about volume resolution , not accuracy .
Volume resolution is about the distance between the fused points . How closer they are , how more details the model have on the surface.
Volume accuracy is a precision of the points in space vs the real object .
So volume accuracy is something else than volume resolution .
It is like printing object on 3D printer , the nozzle size you printing with is the volume Accuracy ( how smaller it is how finer objects you can scan) , and the layer hight is the volume resolution ( how smaller it is how finer the details )
So using Fast mode is like using printing nozzle diameter 0.3mm with layer hight at 0.1mm
Compared to nozzle diameter of 0.05mm at layer hight of 0.1mm with High Accuracy mode .
As with printers , you can still print layer hight at 0.1Omm ( 0.15mm) when using nozzle diameter of 0.6mm …
