Using photogrammetry, it can capture data on the geometric shape and texture of diverse objects. In contrast to traditional technologies, the scanner delivers high-resolution results, and decides for itself how to view a particular item. Based on an initial scan, sophisticated algorithms determine what further scanning positions are required. This allows CultArm3D-P to collect information on an object quickly, with a minimal number of scans – and without prior training or a CAD model. It enables the system to digitize ...
