Scan large format outdoor shiny reflective surfaces

Post by jaybee63 » 25 Jan 2018, 08:19

We are looking to scan yachts and powerboats and any device we have trialled has failed to deal with the reflective nature of the gelcoat.
We can not dust down a yacht with non reflective powder.

I'd welcome any input from anyone who has had success sacnning such objects.

Put it in a CT-scan! :lol:

Well, that seems crazy, but the future is going in that direction.
At least they do it with cars, Caterpillats and containers: https://www.iis.fraunhofer.de/en/magazi ... entge.html

Most impressiv things of these toys: you calculate inside and outside surfaces without alignement issues.

BTW quite expensive stuff (around 1 million for a 40 cm radiusx150 height working field at 110 microns)

A little more information please:

Do you need to scan the whole boat or just parts/sections?

What are you scanning it for (reverse engineering, designing accessories, video game asset)?

What level of detail and accuracy do you need in the scanns?

What's your budget?
