How to scan a complex and flat object

Hi all,

I am trying to scan an object which is quite flat. So whenever I am scanning one side and the scanner passes over the flat edge, alignment gets lost. So I have scanned the back and front in two steps, but then the alignment can not find overlapping segments due to the small edge.
Maybe these pictures can help, scanning-spray almost gone.
Any idea on how to scan such objects?

Thanks a lot for suggestions!


This looks like a washable object. Maybe use foot spray or dry shampoo spray. Much cheaper than scanning spray! Only needs some rincing to clean afterwards.

As for scanning: put some objects with features around the object. I like using lego bricks. Scan as much you can without tracking issues, remove these objects easily in revoscan before merging multiple scans if you needed to take more passes.

Place a towel under it. Make sure to scan the towel as your moving around from the front to back


Good ideas, thanks a lot! I will try them all and report.

Works like a charm! Great idea, thanks a lot.
