I received the new Revopoint 3D scanner a few days ago: the POP 2 (thanks to the Revopoint team and special thanks to Cassie).
I state that I was an enthusiastic backer of POP 1 and I immediately appreciated its innovative features, and put it in my professional kit. I work professionally in the conservation and restoration of works of art and my specialization is in the restoration of ancient sculptures. The experimentation and application of 3D technologies in the context of my professional activity have become increasingly present, becoming an integral part of it, together with the more traditional tools, in my personal “toolbox”.
In this forum I was able to present some of my applications, examples and tests of the POP 1 scanner. I also carried out a comparative test with the Einscan SE 3D scanner (see the related post)
and another with the Creality CR SCAN 01 3D scanner (see the related post).
The same day that I received the POP 2 I thought of performing a test scan of a sculpture, for this test I used the same one I had scanned for the “POP 1 vs Einscan SE” test.
In the images you can see the contents of the package I received:
It is a complete set, with also the turntable.
In the photo the set prepared for the scan of the sculpture:
I liked the build quality of the scanner (solid metal) and also the accessories:
Tripod with gopro type one-button quick installation
Turntable - can be used both with batteries (therefore no power cable) and with the USB cable, supplied, which can be used by connecting it to a USB port on the computer, or with a smartphone power supply, or with a powerbank
Photographich handle with powerbank
All connection cables for the scanner
In using the Handy Scan application, I appreciated the fluidity of the acquisition (the frame rate increased to 10fps is appreciated and also the enhanced built-in cpu -now dual core with NPU- present in the scanner that processes the acquired 3D data)
To be able to compare the quality of the scan with POP 2, I performed the acquisition of the sculpture using the turntable as in the previous test.
Also, I set the scan quality to maximum accuracy.
The scan was carried out by placing the sculpture vertically and the scanner mounted on the tripod at the distance that allowed me to scan in “Excellent” mode
After the first full rotation, I stopped the scan and raised the scanner (using the telescopic extension of the tripod), then I resumed the scan.
Lastly, I performed the merging of the points (in “high precision” mode it takes a little more time than “fast scan”) and then exported the “point cloud” in PLY format.
I processed the file obtained with Handy Studio to obtain the mesh. Finally, I applied the “smooth” command to the mesh thus obtained, and then saved the mesh obtained.
Below I present the result that I can define amazing:
In the following images the comparison with the scans of the same sculpture made with EINSCAN SE and POP1:
In the near future I will carry out other tests that I will present here in the forum
(small objects, dark objects, freehand scan, textured color scan,
comparison test with Creality CR SCAN 01 and I hope much more)
