[Guide] How to Scan Small Objects

Scan Small Objects

Keep a closer distance while scanning tiny objects .

Note: Scanning repeatedly couldn’t help the accuracy, and you can improve it by adjusting to a closer distance.

The following are scanning steps:
1.Scan at a proper distance in the range of Excellent or Too near;(100-250mm)
2.Select exposure to "Auto” first, then to “Manual”;
3. Scanning
a.Scan for the first round;
b.Press “Pause”;

c.Turn it over, scan the top and bottom areas;

d.Scan the 2nd round
e.Complete scanning;
4.Export the model in ply., obj., or stl.;

Hi, @Nebulus, usually we use “Feature”, but it depends on the objects. If the object is a black and white color one, we will use “Black” mode. (I will share that tutorial soon)

I try in this way, but I have always “miss track” error

I had a lot of difficulty when I first started, too. I have alleviated this problem by getting a Lazy Susan (a turntable with no motor) so that I can keep the distance constant and more accurately control the rate of rotation.

Before you start scanning, make sure you have adjusted the levels in the settings popup that you see when you tap the lower gear icon on the Scan window (start with Automatic to get close, then set it to Manual to prevent the servo loop from continually adjusting the setting, followed by any tweaking you deem necessary to improve the overall image).

Once setup and you have started scanning, move the POP around the object, but not too quickly.
