Polyester FootCast scan

My first try to scan a polyester casting sock with the RevoPoint scanner.
The scan is great, now i must find a workflow that makes it easier and faster.
I am thinking of some kind of rail to guide the scanner around the object, combined with a rotating platform.
This scan was made with the cast on a rotating platform and the scanner on a improvised lifting platform.
Will continue experimenting. The goal is to be as fast or faster than scanning with my hand held laserscanner.


Hi @PodoTools

The result looks great! I can even see the lines on the sock’s showcase, thank you so much for sharing it.

Best Regards


I think one of those relatively inexpensive robot arms might be a good tool for moving the scanner.

Thanks for the tip, I will look into it.
Do you have any experience with those robot arms?

No I do not but some of them can be programmed by ‘showing’ them what you want them to do.
