There’s an operational aspect of the scanner that’s not clear to me. I could figure it out experimentally, but decided to ask instead since the thought just crossed my mind and I’m not where I could actually try it out…
If I am scanning an object with the scanner in a fixed position and the object rotating in front of the scanner, like on a turn table, do I need markers?
My first attempt at a budget 3D scanner used a Microsoft Kinect and some software called “ReconstructMe”. The resolution was poor, unfortunately. But I could set the Kinect on the desk in front of me and generate a 3D scan of my head by rotating around on my desk chair’s swivel.
Does that technique work with the POP, or do I have to stick markers to my head for this? (I already know I can wave the scanner around my head to scan it and it doesn’t need markers, but I’m assuming that’s because the scanner has a 6DOF sensor and it’s tracking movement).
