Hello, I am working with a NextEngine Laser scanner trying to create 3D models of Avonlea Projectile Points for my Masters Thesis. I am having difficulty with the scanner not being about to stitch the individual scans together to create a 3D model. I think I've tried just about everything I can think of to make it work but I still come up short.
I am wondering if the problem is that the projectile points I am working with are just too small for the scanner to handle? The points range from 14 to 23mm, and about 2-3mm thick. I have been able to scan points that are larger about 26 to 35mm in length, 6mm at their widest point and get a successful 3D model out of it. Does anyone have any suggestions? The settings I am using right now are a 360 scan, 14-16 divisions, 3.3 thousand points per inch, neutral for colour, and a distance from the scanner of about 9.5 inches. I am covering the scanner completely with a card board box to ensure there is no change in light. Any help or suggestions would be great. I have been trying to make this work for the past 2 months.
