Is there any plan for a scanning app whic is not a “demo”?
While the tracking is the best I have tried across various hand-held scanners and software tools using kinect, and the data is good enogh, it is basically impossible to use the app for serious work because of its limitations…
- it is impossible to scan an object parallel to ground… I understand this “automatic table clipping”, but not all objects are convex shapes on top of a table.
- setting up the scan area is a pain, as the cube uses heuristics to follow the geometry and most times you just want to position it manually, and it is not possible
- the resolution of the exported data seems to have a hardcoded limit of 50k triangles, which is somehow ridiculous, considering it was possible to manage 1-2 million triangles even in iPad generation 2.
Not even mentioning the “email only” output, or the fact that all scans are called model.obj, which make a nightmare when you do more than one and have to manually rename them afterwards.
As it is, I am using the Structure sensor basically as a toy…
