Tutorial for Motorized Planeless Laser Scanning in DAVID4

Postby grindy » Fri Dec 04, 2015 6:58 pm

It seems that the process for planeless scanning may be different for DAVID4. There is no longer a 3D laser scanning tab, or most of the advanced settings that were discussed in earlier threads. I understand that most people have moved on to SLS with projectors but that will not work for my application. I am doing more like cnc Dave was doing, very large object scans. my calibration targets are 10 feet tall and 8 feet across for each side. I then scan large objects in one sweep. no fusing. I am going for accuracy of one single line in the scan really. fusing could introduce a small shift. So what is the best and proper way to do PLANELESS scanning in DAVID4? I have a valid enterprise sdk license for 4 and don't wanna have to use DAVID3. Thanks!

Some days ago I also noticed that DAVID4 came out without the feature of planeless laser scanning. I talked with Sven about this and he said that it was simply forgotten.
I think the next DAVID4 update will have Planeless Scanning back again. :D

I sure hope so! I need it bad. I have to figure out now how to make a rig for my laser and camera that can support this size calibration panel. then on to planeless hopefully! Please put the features back Sven!

Hi Grindy,
Please test motor scanning with the latest DAVID 4.4.0 and let us know if there are any problems.
