I will be testing the FlexScan3d system using the HP/David hardware that I recently acquired. It uses a standard Acer projector and seems like it delivers very good results with HP/David and presumably works equally well or better with FlexScan's system. I plan to test both systems with the same hardware. The only difference would be that the with the HP setup I have the David turntable and glass calibration patterns.

For The FlexScan system, I will try the printed checkerboard, which I'm just going to assume it would not be as accurate as a real calibration panel. It seems like it will take a few weeks for something like that to arrive. I have to some research on what size calibration board is right for me, I don't think it's wise for me to spring for one in each size and it seems people get good results with just paper, but I want to do a fair comparison.

I actually have an extra Acer projector that I acquired a like 3-4 years ago back when I was going to be getting in to scanning but got too busy. I don't need it since I have this complete HP setup. I think I have it stored with my Basler cameras and POE drivers and lenses. I don't know the exact specs but I think I got some higher end cameras and appropriate lens.

Can FlexScan use special projectors that only do blue light ? Does the software command a blue light or is it that the projector only shoots blue light?

Yes. For those custom projectors, you generally need to buy them from us as they are custom designed and not readily available. :cry: Depending on the projector, they can have just all blue LEDS, or 3 color channels, and just use one of the 3 as needed.
