You need to increase gain/exposure on the exposure settings of depth camera and looks too dark in the viewing window. You’ll want to increase exposure just to the point its overexposed (red should appear) - but you don’t want your scan object to be completely or nearly completely red.
You need a lot of features when using POP2 , and much more markers that you used .
It spins because it can’t detect any features .
Add more markers in irregular pattern and use Marker mode .
Or put the object on a wrinkled cloth like towel or fabric and use Body Mode , the wrinkled cloth will help you to keep tracking as long it is visible in the preview , you can later remove it after fusing .
Also set the Depth Camera exposure to Auto .
If the object you scanning is reflective , you may get very noisy surface . Metalic and shiny objects can’t be scanned properly as the pattern that is projected on the reflective surface has distortions .
first: adjust your exposure until you see a bit of red on your surface. at the moment your objects is underexposed. second: adjust scanning distance (reduce maximum setting) until none of stationary objects /surfaces in the background are getting detected.
I like to place the turntable on the edge of a table so surrounding objects are more far away. I still adjust max range.
Hi @Tom_B the biggest mistake you making is not having your scanner at 35-45 degree angle , also if you scan on rotating turntable avoid anything else that is stationery visible or be scanned while your object rotate , it will confuse the tracking and software .
Put your scanner at the proper angle and make sure that only the objects you are scanning moving , use the Auto exposure for your Depth camera and place the blue square on the middle of the scanned object .
Make sure your table top don’t get scanned since it is stationery … best option would be to adjust the scanning range , or use black silicone mat on the table to prevent scanning the surface .
