Step 1: Position the scanner
The scanProbe system is mounted on an adjustable support and positioned in front of the object to be scanned. The system can be handled using automated devices (robot arm). The scanner is calibrated according to the size of the objet using different calibration plates. The scanner is now ready to scan complex objects. Rotary tables can be used to scan complete objects using indexing mechanisms. The rotary tables can be configured to work in conjunction with the scanner
Step 2 :  Scanning

The measurement process consists of projecting structured light patterns and capturing the deformed patterns by the stereovision system. The system includes two 1.9 or 1.2 Megapixel (St models), or 4 Megapixel (Hp models), b/w FireWire cameras and a structured light projector. The vision devices are connected to a PC equipped with Windows XP and a software for scanning and processing surface data

Step 3 : Measurement of a point cloud

The result of a scanning step is directly displayed on the monitor in a few seconds. Various functionalities are also available to post-process experimental data. The better scanning strategy can be selected on the basis of peculiarities of specific applications. The scanProbe software is designed to control the vision devices and to generate and manipulate point clouds, to acquire the colour

Step 4 : Point cloud alignment

The point clouds are aligned with respect to a common coordinate system using either a simple manual approach (3-2-1 procedure) or alternative automated methodologies (photogrammetry, rotary table, robot).

Step 5 : Data Processing

The experimental result can be exported using standard data formats (ASCII, STL, IGES). Softwares such as RapidForm, Geomagic, Imageware etc are used to process these point clouds to create a model suitable for manufacturing
