DAVID 5 software has been designed to overcome the challenges of 3D scanning glossy and reflective surfaces with its brand new and patented Structured Light patterns!
No matter whether you are using one or two cameras, DAVID 5 will project our new stripe pattern sequence on the object.
This new structure light strip pattern is more robust against reflections, so the big advantage is that glossy/reflective surfaces can be scanned much better.
Of course we still can't do magic, so e.g. glass, mirrors or other very shiny surfaces will still be difficult to scan, so you will need to keep using a white coating spray like a Magnaflux Developer Spray or actually a foot spray will do too.
But even without spray, especially metal can be scanned much better, as the below example demonstrates. See how much the scan is improved with DAVID5 software.
Test Scene - notice the strong reflections!
