The DotProduct DPI-8X is a highly accurate standalone 3D scanner. However, for larger scan jobs and/or jobs with the strictest tolerances, we often recommend implementing targets for the absolute best results. This helps to reduce potential drift within the scan and provides a scale verification within the data. However, this typically means a lot of additional effort before and after the scan session. Mounting targets, taking measurements, calculating control points, preparing targeting files, and post-processing the targets into the data can be a very time-consuming and laborious process for each scan. Even worse, if one measurement or control point is even slightly off, this can create results worse than if no targets had been used at all.
Enter the AccuScale-DP from Brunson Instrument Company This revolutionary scale bar kit, paired with the intelligence of Phi.3D 2.1 & up, achieves all of the benefits of scale bar targeting, without any of the challenges and risks of traditional targeting mentioned above. This scale bar targeting workflow is impressively simple:
- Set up the scale bars at maximum distances within your scene along each axis.
- Capture each target at least once during scanning (turning green, red, & blue).
- Specify the environment temperature in Phi.3D (with the included digital thermometer).
- Optimize with the target locations and exact distances automatically used a a reference.
