Hello everyone, I’m Fay. I recently graduated from university and joined Revopoint in August. The last INSPIRE post received a lot of views and comments, which motivated me. Therefore, I plan to continue this topic, documenting my entire process from my first encounter with MIRACO to becoming proficient in using it. I hope our new users can learn from my experiences in this post, and I also welcome guidance from many professional users in the forum.
Date: December 10th, 2023, First use.
Learn more about MIRACO:
Power on by pressing and holding for 3 seconds.
（I won’t go into the specifics of the unboxing process here, as I believe you’ve probably seen unboxing videos about MIRACO on YouTube or other channels.）
- This page appears after powering on and swiping down from the top of MIRACO’s screen.
- Pre-scan Parameter Settings
To get to the scan settings tap on the button shown in the image above.
- Show color
You can tap to select either the Single-shot or Continuous capture modes.
In either capture modes, you can tap the area shown below to swap between Far-mode and Near-mode.
If scanning in an hard-to-maneuver enivrioment or if you need to capture an object that has sharply contrasted colors on its surfaces, Single-shot mode is a good choice.
When you’ve finished the scan, tap the Model button to go to the post-processing settings.
- Post-scan settings
Let’s get over some gestures that are really handy in post-processing.
①One-Finger Swipe: Rotates the model on the screen
②Two-finger Drag: Moves the model
③ Pinch to Zoom: Together to zoom out; apart to zoom in
If you have scanned an object with lots of details that you want to retain select a low point distance. For models without much detail like a ball, a larger point distance is fine.
Then once the the point cloud has been fused, you need to turn the cloud into mesh. Set the quality to the highest to keep the details, set it to the lowest quality if the details aren’t important.
After editing tap the share button in the top right corner. And open up Revo Scan 5 on your PC, and ensure that MIRACO and your PC are on the same Wi-Fi network. Then follow on the screen instructions to transfer your 3D model to your PC.
The above is a brief introduction to MIRACO from my perspective. In the next post, I will begin to share my scanning journey with MIRACO.
