Point Noise

Last Updated: May 31, 2018 12:21PM EDT
The scanner was designed with busy workplaces in mind: people walking by workspaces while scanning is underway, conversations happening over desks where scanners are working. A defining component and feature of our scanner is its “cleaning” functions that enable users to erase unwanted points. (See Cleaning Scans for more detail on how to clean.)
 
It’s hard not to over emphasize the importance of cleaning your scans, especially given the fact it can be accomplished in a matter of seconds. These improved meshes, in turn, produce impressive 3D prints. Consequences of not cleaning before meshing can be seen below:

Meshing without cleaning has left a foreign body included in the final result.
 
 
Proper and regular cleaning produces better meshes as shown below.
