Learn how to use manual tools to clean up scans.
- [Instructor] In this video, I want to talk…about some clean up strategies,…so when you're looking through your Point cloud,…you'll probably notice some unwanted points,…maybe some artifacts.…Sometimes these are leftover from the scanner.…Sometimes the scanner, they're just junk points…where it bounced errantly off of some object…and produced a weird reflection.…Highly reflective or transparent objects…are often troublesome for the scanner,…so if you're scanning through windows or against mirrors,…that will often create a lot of artifacts.…
We have to remember that the scanner is using a laser,…and laser is a kind of light,…so just like when you shine a light on a mirror…or on a piece of glass, you see reflections and refractions.…The same is gonna happen with the laser beam.…So, in all of those cases you'll sometimes end up…with some artifacts,…and then there's the more obvious stuff,…things like the scanner itself.…So as you can see, in this space,…we can see the tripod and the scanner…because we were short on time,…
