Hi All,


New to this, I have a piece of a front guard I would like to scan.

I have started to scan the  guard but the software is struggling to align the scan once its bigger that 250mm. I am using the 240mm calibration screen

The part size is 400mm by 500mm see the ruler in the photos for reference


Now for the noob question:


How can I scan this guard without getting alignment issues?


Do I need to adjust the Keystone on the projector to get a better scan?


What would be the best orientation to scan such a part?


Would I need to scan both sides to get a solid model?


Scanner is David SLS-3 software 4.5.3

Thanks in advance

How are you scanning the object currently, are you scanning in sections or scanning the whole fender itself? Make sure the projector is in focus and scan in smaller sections so that you can align them together afterwards. You can try scanning the back also, but it may be difficult to align to the front without alot of overlapping surfaces. How far is the camera from the fender?
