today I present a post I think may be of interest to owners (like me) of the first Revopoint scanner: the POP 1.
This is the first Revopoint scanner I have used (even with exciting results) although the software was still quite raw at the beginning! Despite this, I loved (and still love!) this scanner.
In recent days, having had the opportunity to use the latest version of the Revo Scan software (already Handyscan) with the MINI and the POP 2, I promised myself to carry out a test with the POP 1:
I wanted to understand if with the new software (which showed improvements with the latest Revo scanners) had improved results with POP 1.
To carry out this test I used a wooden sculpture (which those who follow me have already seen used as an example in several posts) with the following characteristics: dark wood, in contrast with lighter areas, shiny areas.
Below is the result of the scan:
The result seems to me to be amazing: really clean point cloud and the resulting mesh that is clean and rich in details, and with (almost) zero artefacts. The sculpture was scanned in three main parts (+ detail of the upper part of the head), subsequently aligned and meshed with Meshlab.
In short, the Revopoint team did not leave behind the first POP (which is still in the catalogue).
As I wrote in the title of the post I decided to make a comparison with the latest Creality scanner.
Below is the result. Although (on paper) it has “better” characteristics than POP 1, the result seems to me to speak for itself.
Creality’s software, CR Studio, is a professional-looking software (even if the Mac version is not fully functional) but it is, all in all, difficult, or rather, not intuitive to use. If you compare the images of the result with the POP 1, apparently it does not look so different, but in reality, numerous artefacts/noise/roughness, are visible caused by the presence of contrast between light and dark areas on the surface (see the area of the neck and left shoulder) and poor resolution (see the top of the head, hair strands).
POST SCRIPTUM - I WOULD UNDERLINE THAT IN NONE OF THE TWO TESTS WAS ANY KIND OF SOFTWARE EDITING PERFORMED and / or IMPROVEMENT OF THE RESULT
