Front and back view of the MIRACO with all accessories including HDMI adapter to allow viewing on larger screens, USB cables for scanner and turntable, charger which can fully charge the unit in about 30 minutes
this is a very quick scan of a very dirty piston that needs bigger pockets milled into the top to stop piston to valve contact, not an amazing scan but a very quick way to get accurate enough data to do the job in hand
scanned with the MIRACO in marker mode on the magic mat
I imported it to fusion 360 and aligned it to get the piston at the correct angle to mill the pockets in the top, once the piston was aligned as close as I could a quick mesh sketch gave me everything I needed to design a fixture to hold the pistons
the conrod could not be removed for this milling operation because of its interference fit design so this jig was the easiest way to hold it correctly
Yes it can be done without markers but the bigger featureless areas like the roof are more challenging than in marker mode which is very fast and accurate, it would require something added to the roof to help which could later be edited out, there are several tricks that can be used to help,
Its a tradeoff between time adding and removing markers and having a painless scanning experience or not adding markers and having to find the best way to scan something without many features and adding features to help with tracking
As always it depends on the object that you want to scan which way you choose
Hi Gary , you can actually have the same quality results processing on MIRACO as you do on PC , the only difference here is time since Android system is slower of course, but the ends results can be the same , that what makes here a difference between phone and MIRACO .
Miraco is much more advanced than Range … you can do with it what Range can’t .
I watched the live last night, I saw the miraco processed face scan, and… Wow!!! Incredible results from it, I thought there’s no way a hand held could be that good after seeing results from my phone, but Wow!!!
Right ? I was surprised after scanning the face how much details it was … incredible … normally we used 100K scanners at work for that results before … a game changer … of course skin is translucent, it needs slightly preparation to get that results , glad you like it !
the MIRACO scanner is grate for confined spaces like engine bays,
I did this quick scan in near mode to capture the position of the crank trigger wheel that I fitted to the front pully of the Toyota Supra, this allowed me to design a mounting bracket to fit a new crank sensor in the correct location without taking any measurements, the scan data gave me all the info I needed to design the part to fit exactly to the engine cover with only one bolt
