I have a fairly dark house and am having a trouble getting good scans. How much and what type of light do you recommend. Would a 3 lamps shadeless around the object being scanned be sufficient lighting. I'll have to experiment a bit but wanted to see if anyone has any best advice.
Are you having trouble with the 2D color overlay or with the depth scans? The number of lamps around your object should not affect the depth, a filter on the depth sensor should block all the visible light.
What are you trying to scan?
The best scans that we have seen use bright but diffused artificial (not sunlight) lighting from multiple sources to illuminate the subject and eliminate shadows. We have seen from the community that photography or camera lighting works best for this.
If you are looking to purchase lighting for your scans, some of our customers have suggested lighting similar to these: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/857242-REG/genaray_led_2100_36_lamp_compact_led.html
Hope this helps!
I would not have expected that for the depth. Is that to compliment the RGB overlay? or just something the community has found experimentally?
I am using photography lightening ( indirect light ) 3 of them and and not to close from the object or person with a turn table,. I find that the less you are moving your scanner and the more constant your light the better is your scan .
