PSA: Please do not attempt object scanning with the Wide Vision Lens!

Hello all!

Since we added the Launch Bundle with Structure Sensor (Mark II), which included a Wide Vision Lens, I have seen an uptick in users who are attempting object scanning (via Scanner, itSeez3D, etc) with a Wide Vision Lens attached and are getting upset when their scans are bizarrely distorted.

Scanner is not intended to work with the Wide Vision Lens; in fact, that is not the purpose of the Wide Vision Lens at all.

The Wide Vision Lens was developed to help Room Capture and Canvas users maintain tracking across large swathes of blank wall. For more information on the Wide Vision Lens and its utility, please check out this article: What is the Wide Vision Lens and how does it affect my use of Canvas?
