View Full Version : Capping scanned data

10 October 2003, 11:05 AM

I have many laser scanned models which need alot of postprocessing work.

I'm using 3dmax 5.1

The 3 problems with the scanned objects are.
1. Noise
2. Missing sides of the objects.
3. Mesh resolution is too high.

1. Can be fixed using a smooth tool such as
Polysculpt by Herman Saksono.
Thanks Herman! :)

2. The missing sides has been very problematic.
Tried creating a poly from one edge to the other and capping
but that just creates a big poly which is difficult to modify.
Need the hole to follow the contour of a rounded edge.

Any suggestions welcome here. Have attached an image.

3. Tried using max multires which is not bad, any alternatives?

Suggestions for any of the above welcome.
I realize there are laser scanning tools out there, rapidform and geomagic but I do not have the buget for these.

Any help most welcome.
