Q&A question&answer



Is there anything that you can not scan?

Shiny objects need to be sprayed with a removable white powder before scanning. Porous or fluffy objects, such as sponges, cannot be scanned do to their tendency to absorb laser light. Lasers can only collect data on the “front” of the target. When the shape of the object makes it impossible to scan all surfaces from one position, we take multiple scans and merge the scan data in post-processing. Furthermore, if an object’s temperature is extremely hot or cold, data can be skewed.
