[Skanect Beta] Invitation to Participate in Skanect Version 1.9 Beta


#1

Hello everyone,
We’re in the process of finalizing the next release of Skanect (v1.9) - and we’re reaching out for beta testers. We expect to have a stable package of Skanect (v1.9) available within the next week, pending some last minute fixes and our tests against a myriad of scanners/mobile devices/hardware.

We’re planning on version 1.9 to include the following updates:

  • Faster GPU Depth Fusion
  • Hi-Resolution Color Scanning when used over Uplink
  • Several requests from the community

We’ll provide more detailed release notes on the above once we have a shareable build. If you’re interested in participating, reach out to us in one of the following ways:

And include SUBJECT: Skanect Beta. We’ll be running all communication through our Structure Forums, so be sure to include your Structure Forum username and configuration of hardware(s) when you message us. If you’re not signed up for our forums - no problem. Reach out and I’ll send you an Structure Forum invite.

NOTE: We’re planning on limiting the number of beta-testers to ~10, so please reply as soon as possible.

Thanks for your help and interest. This is a new version with a few updates we think you’ll appreciate.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Mark Piszczor

Hi, I’m interested in joining Skanect 1.9 beta testing. I have i7 + GTX 980M laptop and i7 six generation Alienware and a GTX 980 desktop with 32GB ram. I have the Kickstarter Structure sensor and hacker cable. I’m mainly interested in architectural reproduction and do research at Cambridge University.

Thanks again to everyone interested in participating in the Skanect Beta. We have more participants than we could have hoped for including a short waiting list - glad to see the excitement to get your hands on this latest version.

For those that will be participating - I’ll send you a link soon to a separate Structure Forum Group through which we’ll be running communications, files and release notes for this beta program. I’ll be sending that today so stay tuned.

Cheers,
Mark

Now that itseez3d no longer offers any kind of free export, even for non-commercial use, I was wondering if theres any new news about Skanect 1.9? I’m just a hobbyist (at least for now), but I was having fun using the high resolution textures made from itseez3d as displacement maps in zbrush to add in fine detail to my scans. I havent actually used skanect more than a few times after buying the license because the textures didnt come out as nice as itseez3d. But now that exports from itseez3d are locked behind a $7 per scan cost, I’m no longer using it, and will be coming back to skanect

Hi any documentation for bounding box setting in the config file for 1.9?? “BODY” is pretty useless now. Thanks


#19

Skanect CONFIG.INI file

[BoundingBox]
center-y-as-height-percent =
; Changed start point of scan from ground up

[DepthSensor]
focal-x
focal-y
center-x
center-y

[ColorSensor]
focal-x
focal-y
center-x
center-y

You should not need to change the focal or center parameters unless you got some better calibration parameters using an external calibration tool.

Hello, it looks like Skanect Pro might have been released at 1.9 but the download for regular Skanect is 1.8.4 ~ I’d like to be able to try out the pipeline before dropping the cash. Or am I looking in the wrong place? I get the “Skanect is too old for this version of the Structure App” message. Many thanks!
