6 TIPS FOR GREAT 3D SCANS WITH A TURNTABLE
Tip 1: Choose the right size turntable
Use a small turntable for scans of small objects. This way you can place your camera closer to the object you want to scan.
Tip 2: Arrange for a neutral background
A neutral background is a must. The simpler, the better. Sometimes a roll of white background paper is all it takes!
Tip 3: Make scans with a good camera
Make sure you have a good camera and other photography equipment. With 3D scans, sharp pictures are crucial to get good image quality when zooming in.
Tip 4: Use a tripod
A very small object (the size of a coin, for instance) can be attached to a tripod you place on the turntable. This way you can still scan the product from above, below and the side.
Tip 5: Create proper lighting
Create diffused light in your photography space. Diffused light will hit the object you’re scanning from various angles, which will prevent undesired shadows and extreme contrasts.
Tip 6: Scan clean objects
It’s important you thoroughly clean the object to be scanned before starting your 3D scan. This will prevent time-consuming corrections and image processing later on.
