3D Scan Lighting

Importance Of Lighting


Running around with my handy-dandy hand held 3D scanner, I find how lighting plays a key role. As with 2D photography, lighting will make or break a 3D scan. The scanner easily looses tracking if not enough light is present. Sunlight kills the scan as does shadow.


I found that an overcast sky had decent lighting but the colors were slightly muted. The best place to scan turned out to be my kitchen.


You deserve a better place than my kitchen to be scanned so I am building a 10' X 10' 3D Scan Booth out of a canopy and tarp. Inside will be about 5 lamps and ample space for full figure scans.


More on this as my scan booth gets close to completion.
