Marker mode is better for the bigger flat area of the roof, bonnet and doors etc (no real features ) but yes I have scanned the full car with the feature mode ( little more challenging ), also remember that version 5 of the software is not out yet so I used version 4.3.0 to do this scan which has already been updated to v 4.3.1 so improvements in the software will no doubt improve the user experience by the time V5 is finished which is the recommended software for the Range scanner
I will be doing more scanning with the latest version later today so I should be able to post that one when completed
I have scans already but with old version so better to use the latest version I think
Sorry Ivan , we can’t share more at this moment without permission from the boss , so you have to wait just a little longer but not too long, I will tell you only one thing …new era is coming , forget everything you know, empty your cup and be ready …
It’s going to be awesome .
I probably went over the top with the markers in some places, I used about 1000 markers on the whole car, the field of view is big so marker spacing is quite far apart, I think 5 - 8 cm is recommended but I probably have them up to 8 - 12cm in places, tracking was good,
you can see the markers on the front end picture the best it’s a little difficult to see them on the rest of the body because of the orange colour
I would not recommend a phone to use with Range if you going for a accuracy and quality , the point cloud generated with a 2 m size objects is around 4.5 GB when using laptop-PC , it would be not possible for a phone to produce mesh quality at that level even if your phone have 8GB RAM , mobile apps qualities are always reduced and propably you get around 5% of actual quality . Another thing is frame speed , if your phone can’t handle the frame speed you will get in troubles with tracking , so get yourself PC tablet if you wish to get the best of it.
As Johnathan stated this is Infrared Scanner so like a night vision you can scan at night or complete darkness.
4.5GB was size of the point cloud , the mesh was 14 millions polygons , you can decimate it still to 250K and preserve most of the details , it all depends of what kind of model it is and how much details , hard edge models like cars and models with flatter surfaces can be decimated to even lower values .
I am talking about objects around 2m in suze .
Thank you Johnathan and Popupthevolume for that information, I guess time to invest in a laptop since car scanning will be my main focus, i see 16gb ram and core i7 is recommended, is there a ln even more optimal option, like 32gb ram and core i9 or is that overkill?
