Special feature for symmetric objects

Postby mr_cg » Sat Nov 07, 2015 6:38 pm

Hereby i would like to request some special features for scanning symmetric objects.
The features should help to:
a) save scanning time by reduced amout of required scans
b) no need to scan the full object (e.g. leave special construction to fix the object)
c) skip and restore broken areas

The feature should allow the following features which are useful for symmetric objects:
1. Copy grouped scan's and reuse them for realignment by given rotation angle
2. Copy grouped scan's & mirror the point cloud for realignment by given rotation angle (usuall 180° to reconstruct the whole object by scanning only one symmetric half of it)


For industrial produced objects the copying and reusage of symmetric sections should produce quite good results.
Espcially the scanning process will be simplified because only reduced amout of scan's per full rotatation is needed.
Beside this it's very useful to reconstruct broken and hidden areas of the object.

At least mirroring scan results to e.g. replicate broken parts of an object would be good.
In some cases 180° rotation is not working depending on the symmetry of the object (e.g. eyeglass frame).

For the other request workaround solution (duplicate scan results and realign by given rotation angle) is available.
Anyhow ... 1 click solution (reconstruct 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/8) would be also quite nice feature.
