This scan was taken with our Creaform GoScan 50 white light scanner. It is able to scan to within +/-0.1mm accuracy and can also capture colour and texture. Furthermore, it is totally portable so we can go anywhere and scan virtually anything!
White light scanners are gaining in popularity due to the fact they can scan some objects without the need for laser targets. This is useful when the object that is to be scanned is delicate or of significant monetary or historical value as the adhesive used to affix the targets could damage the surface of the object.
For this to work however, the object must have plenty of surface detail for the scanner to track. Smooth featureless surfaces will almost always still require targets to enable the scanner to reference itself. For those readers keen to find out more about the different types of scanning technologies, I came across this great post on the Rapidform website. Check it out.
