3D Scan Cleanup Process

3D Scan Cleanup Process

3D Scan Cleanup process is an extremely essential step that every 3d Scanned geometry mesh must go through.

During the 3D Capture process, more than a few areas of your subject may end up occluded from the camera view and may not have been captured properly. Even with the best of the best equipment and thousands of cameras some areas may be missing (or maybe not), but lets get back to reality - some areas will for sure be missing even with the most reasonable photogrammetry system.

Having cameras pointing to all the right places of interest is very important, even at the cost of missing unimportant regions. This is because getting both: the right and the best data will give you the ability to reconstruct and interpret occluded regions correctly. More data does not equal good data.

If you live outside of Vancouver and are looking for the 3D Scanning Service provier, make sure you pick the one who will provide you with the cleanest data posible and consider using our 3d Scan Cleanup Service for your scan post-processing needs.
