3D SCANNING LIMITATIONS 

Apart from the object size limitations specific to SOL PRO, there are some well-known general challenges that you need to consider when 3D scanning:

  • Moving or touching a 3D scanner while scanning will most likely result in inaccurate or failed scan
  • Objects that change shape while scanning
  • Holes in objects not visible to the camera
  • Shiny or translucent surfaces
    - Possible solution: Spray the object with a 3D developer spray
  • The meshing of scanning passes from two or more orientations may be problematic with symmetrical objects
    - Possible solution: Attach something to the object to make the shape asymmetrical
