I’ve been talking to Michael Balzer (@mebalzer), creator of the very useful 4eyes lens adapter he’s created; which you can purchase from his store here:
Thought it would best to share the conversation with the forum. The 4eyes is quite an amazing improvement to the structure for high res scanning. Very impressed with the results we’ve been getting:
In these tests I was using the scanner via usb cable, plugged into my laptop- which has a fairly powerful graphics card for a laptop: (NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 860M - 2GB GDDR5 VRAM). So that may have something to do with the quality I’ve been getting. I find that I’m getting best results setting the bounding box to around .7M without X2. We’re very curious to know what others are getting from different settings- anyone doing 4eyes tests, please reply to the thread with screen shots and settings.
The goal here going for the best high-res (relatively quick) close detail scan we can. We’re using the scans to produce medical devices; specifically, my startup Metamason is using the structure in our process for creating custom fit CPAP masks for sleep apnea patients. We’re interested in the human nose (fitting CPAP masks to it)- anything we can do to improve compliance and coupling to the nostrils (hard to scan) has benefits.
