I recently bought a mini and I am unable to properly scan the any objects other than the sample.
I read a lots of forum posts and tried different settings no luck.
My current project is to 3D scan a Black object that is around 7mm thick about 2ft long. I read mini can not scan Black. So I used a powder to cover the Black surface. then tried to Scan. It gets the starting point right then it can not track properly and scans are weirdly overlap/extend.
I had a similar problem. I printed sheets of paper (A3 size) with black background and white dots as markers, this stopped the 3d scan ‘runaway’ as it is called, as the markers keep it on track. This way you do not have markers stuck all over the part you are scanning
the color need to be bright if possible , the best white to gray in color , other colors may not keep well tracking and definitely not red, yellow , green or black .
The dots are good for one scanning session , once you move your object you can’t track it again using this method , I suggest you scan in sessions and later merge them all in one object using Revo Studio
first of all MINI was not created to scan this kind of objects , it was more for very fine objects like small miniatures, jewelry etc… MINI for MINI objects , however it is possible to scan bigger objects , you just need to develop your own workflow with that as each object is different and need different approach .
I suggest you just use small objects around the scanned object and scan it in one session from the beginning the end , don’t put it flat on the surface , make sure it is lifted slightly from the ground so you get clean edges ( just slightly ).
what I use in feature mode is this , simply printed objects
you can’t lose tracking with that when scanning features objects .
