In applications where the scan target is larger than a single sensor’s field of view, or has a complex shape, multi-view scanning and processing are required in order to capture the complete geometry of the part.
Multi-view scanning and processing are used to:
- Cover larger fields of view while maintaining high resolution
- See more of the part (360º ring layout or opposing layout to measure thickness)
- See past occlusions (undercuts, gaps, steep edges)
- Perform absolute measurement between two or more features separated by a large distance (where both sensors must be calibrated to a world coordinate system)
Multi-View Processing in Gocator®
What makes Gocator® unique among 3D sensors is its built-in multi-view 3D scanning and processing capability, which can be executed in one of two ways:
- Using multiple networked sensors to scan all the different views of a part to build a fully digitized 3D model
- Using an XY stage and a single sensor to scan and stitch several views into a single surface
And that's just the beginning of the story ...
