Test of 3DReshaper PH-DT-PO-MH July 09 Introduction Here I present the importation of the point cloud data and the mesh creation using 3DReshaper. The cloud of points is found at the following: G:\Workspaces\r\ReverseEngineering\Aurelie\Scan_Feb2009\TestLogicielsScanning\F aceATest2.xyz « Le fichier a déjà été traité dans Faro par Aurélie. Donc on le prend tel quel et on joue avec. » X View Z view Y view Comparison Same as before ? 3D Mesh creation – default settings 3D Mesh creation – finer settings 3D Mesh creation – less fine settings Conclusions Far from expert so take these comments accordingly: Question the number of points imported compared to those displayed. No difference witnessed if point cloud is reduced or not on importation ? The “Y” and “Z” views show many stray points – not good. Not a reflection on 3DReshaper more a comment on the scan results. Post treatment of point cloud data is very time consuming – working somewhat in the dark on this new software. ‘Archidata’ have 2 pc’s side by side so when one is busy calculating they work on the other one. An experienced practitioner may be able to go much faster but even so should not underestimate the effort required create a mesh that can be useful. At first view other products seem to do more BUT this may be due to lack of knowledge of the software. To be able to make a judgement of 3DReshaper compared to other software packages it would be fairer to ask a trained practioner to produce a mesh result from the point cloud data.
