Scanning with Colour in Mind – Using the ZEB-CAM

Points to consider in order to capture a good point cloud for colourising:

  • Walk slowly pointing the scanner to the centre of the room;
  • Keep a steady hand; When transitioning to different spaces:
    • Stop
    • Point the scanner in both sides of the transition area consecutively
    • Create “arcs” around doors and other transition spaces;
  • Stop for 5 seconds every 1 minute or so to increase video coverage and quality.
  • Try not to walk straight down a corridor.
  • Create arcs and move to each side of the corridor.
  • When starting the scan, make sure the ZEB-CAM is on and the cable is fully plugged in.
