- How do I set up the point distance and mesh quality?
1. What are Fusion, Mesh and Texture?
When you scan an object, you are capturing the point cloud data from that object at 360°.
The first step is to fuse the point cloud which means you will merge captured point cloud data into a unified and accurate point cloud model. Note: fused point cloud is still point cloud. You can export PLY and OBJ format after fusing the point cloud.
The second step is to mesh the point cloud which means you will turn the point cloud into polygons and get a solid 3D model so that you can 3d print it. You can export STL, PLY and OBJ after meshing the point cloud.
The third step is to texture the meshed model, this depends on if you enable the “Color Scan“ before scanning. If you don't, then "Texture" is not accessible.
