Dear Structure sensor enthusiasts,
I would like to find out what you see as the pros and cons of the software available with/for the Structure sensor. So far I have played with Scanner and ItSeez3D from the Apple App Store, as well as Skanect. I am interested in reverse-engineering small objects for 3D printing applications.
It seems to me:
1) ItSeez3D and Scanner benefit from a program that runs on the IPad so that the user can set the bounding box while pointing the sensor to the object of interest.
2) ItSeez3D has some features in the high-quality cloud processing, namely it can isolate the main object of interest as well as seal the lower surface. Do either Skanect or Scanner offer comparable post-processing? I believe that it is feasible with mesh repair to make the mesh watertight, including inserting a lower plane, when not provided by Skanect or Scanner.
3) Scanner can track an object on a turntable, using the older tracking algorithm, while ItSeez3D does not; one has to walk around the object for the latter software to track.
4) Because Skanect requires a separate machine for processing including bounding box selection, what does it offer that Scanner and ItSeez3D do not?
Thanks for your kind support.
