The rhino is a standard polythene toy mid grey/brown 140mm long 70 mm high. The cow is similar. I use it mostly for scanning clay sculptures. This Archeopterix head is at the lower size end, about 30mm long. I had to do quite a bit of remodelling in zBrush to get it decent! (I didn’t have my Mini at this point)
I haven’t noticed any improvements in my Pop v1
@3D-looey you should since the point fusing algorithms changed, I can see it even on the animals surface you scanned , not that it is improving anything other than adding some grain surface .
The 30 mm is sadly the reaching point for a single volume .
When I purchased early POP1 , my only intension was to use it for scanning faces in general and it did the work I needed . The resolution was just fine as it was more for the shape /volume than fine details .
Don’t get obsessed, this type of scanning technology suffer a lot from grain effect on the surface , infrared in general is very picky on micro surface as even slightly micro reflection can cause noises shifting the points up and down .
Blue laser scanners like MINI dealing less with that issue .
I work also in Zbrush , and the best way is just to make retopology or remeshing the scan to get rid of the triangles so you can clean out all the noises on the surface much easier . Triangles are pest in post production .
I’ll answer this. Absolutely it is.
I have the Mini and the Pop2. The Pop2 gets more use despite being worse on paper. The mini is great for… mini things, and when I need a ton of detail. For everything else I use the Pop2.
POP2 use infrared invisible light and safe as well , you will be fine scanning your models faces with .
MINI Blue light is also Class 1 safe laser but some people don’t feel comfortable with blinking blue light in their faces so you going to be better of with POP2.
I got a POP2 after I tried MINI, and I absolutely recommend it. I use it all the time!
Like @Rilot said, MINI is best for very small objects or things that require a lot of detail. Other than that, POP 2 is your best friend
Hi @PUTV thank you for the reply. I was trying to reply below the post where you have used normal and displaced maps on the model Athena to add details to the 6K poly model. The reply kept showing up at the bottom of the thread and I don’t know why. I know you are always busy but I am adding my name to the replies of people who would be interested to see the workflow in the future. Thank you.
