Tried the whole Sunday with no decent results

I was so happy when I received my unit this week and reserved my whole Sunday to get started with it. Now I am sitting here quite frustrated while I did not get out any decent results while trying to scan various objects. Will provide videos of my failures. :sob:

3D spray coating (White)
Larger turntable or flat silicone mat
Remove “daylight”
Light colored objects in the background (Floor etc) that are not rotating don’t help.

What do you mean by “remove daylight”?
And I read in another post that such a spray is not good for a lot of objects because cleaning afterwords might fail.
Or which spray would You suggest?

@adrian142 your videos are a total failure , you can’t scan shiny objects, glass or transparent plastic , black plastic or rubber or black paint, or metal , it is not visible by the scanner .
You need to buy yourself a 3D spray as @Miamijerry mentioned and prepare proper the surfaces , the 3D sprays are vanishing by itself not need cleaning after . One of them is

do not over scan your object many times over and over again it don’t helping making it only worse . You should scan only one tourn at a time maximum 300 frames , fuse it and mesh .
I think you need to learn a little bit how 3D scanning working , and how you scan proper your objects . The rules apply to all 3D scanners .

In the upper window you can see the daylight reflected by lightly colored objects, either move the objects, or move to a darker location.

I think you might have underestimated the learning curve. I received my Pop 2 5 days ago and I am having some success now but I have been trying experimenting every day.

Stick at it, follow the advice you find here and you will start to see the ‘light’. I would still be struggling if not for some of the help found here, especially from @PopUpTheVolume (thanks loads!).

Yes @adrian142 , it getting better , starting with a simple things will get you there , just remember scanning a simple coffee mug is more difficult than the little dog you have there . Small objects with a lot of details are always much easier to scan .
