I have watched the live video released by Creality recently.
Here I’d like to put some comments on that.
1)Scan Black ?
For most optical scanners, the accuracy of scanning black objects will relatively lower than others, but not all black objects present such a scanning effect. For shiny black surfaces, there is a significant decrease in accuracy; but for black diffuse surfaces, the accuracy would be much better.
The black and shiny surface is a common problem for 3D scanners. POP using infrared light that could scan black surface a little better than white light.
This is the link of scanning a girl with black hair by POP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9zqKjC9Kz4&t=11s
2) Fast ?
It is noticed that their live video showed that the frame rate is around 7 fps.
Revopoint only writes the parameters we have reached.
I’m not sure. I did not get any color model by their product
POP’s RGB camera is 2 megapixels, which could provide a good texture.
PS: In the live they showed a Chinese 3d model website;
Revopoint POP vs Creality 3d scanner
POP is committed to providing high-precision 3D scanning results and a good scanning experience. We are professional in developing and producing 3D scanners and have produced tens of thousands of products with high quality.
POP requires only one USB cable for both power supply and data transmission, which is more convenient and much simpler for handheld scanners. If you have used a professional scanner, you will know how annoying it is to scan things with so many wires.
Binocular Cameras VS One Camera
You may notice that their scanner has a projector and 1 camera, their intrinsic parameters are easy to change when the device is heating or long-time using and needs to be calibrated frequently;
I have not seen how their products are calibrated.
POP has two cameras, which are much stable and you do not need to calibrate when long time using.
White light VS Infrared Light
Strong white light would make the user uncomfortable when scanning humans, and the ambient light around them would sometime affect the scanning result much. Outdoor scanning is impossible.
POP is equipped with infrared light, helping to scan humans without any comfort, and their accuracy and the scan result would not be affected by the ambient light indoor. In cloudy days, you can scan outdoor with good effects.
Size & Weight
With mall size and light weight like a cigar, POP is really portable. POP only weighs 200g, only 1/10 of the counterpart. allowing users long-time holding easily.
Their Products need high-performance computers. Handy Scan could work on a general Computer smoothly.
POP has embedded calculation inside on point cloud, greatly lowering computation burden on PC and smart phones. So it could work on Windows, Android, iOS, and Mac, easy to use everywhere,
The Revopoint Team has engaged in 3D imaging and 3D scanner for over 20 years, Revopoint 3D is willing to make game changes in 3D scanning field with good products and services. We heartfully look forwards to your suggestion for our improvement, and we are glad to hear your thought about 3d scanner. Let us make some new game-changing products together.
