  1. 1. Setup Overview Here's a brief overview of how to setup your object for the scan. 1. Adjust AutoPositioner cord to desired scan distance: Macro or Wide. 2. Plug AutoPositioner cord into Scanner base 3. Pull cord tight and center AutoPositioner in front of Scanner 4. For shiny or dark objects prep with powder/paint pens 5. If you plan on aligning multiple scans first add alignment points 6. Place and secure object using the AutoPositioner and PartGripper 7. Orient the object using the viewfinder and turntable controls Distance Your scanner is actually 2 complete scanning systems in one box. There are two cameras and two sets of lasers, each with optics optimized for high-precision scanning at a certain distance range. Based on the size of your object and your desired resolution, you can choose which distance you want to use. Use MACRO to capture small objects with exquisite detail (cellphone size) Use WIDE for larger objects (shoebox size) The AutoPositioner cord can be lengthened to the optimum distance for MACRO or WIDE.
  2. 2. Cord at MACRO mode Cord at WIDE mode Plug AutoPositioner cord into front of Scanner Center the AutoPositioner in front of the Scanner and pull the cord tight
  3. 3. A ruler may be helpful to check the distance. Measure from the front of the scanner to the front of the object to ensure it is within scanner range: Ideal distance for MACRO: 6.5quot; (16.5cm) Ideal distance for WIDE: 17quot; (46cm) Parts of the object outside of the range will not be detected by the scanner. For example, if your object is too close, you may only see an outline. Total MACRO range:. 5-9quot; (13-23cm) Total WIDE range: 15-22quot; (38-56cm) HD Pro Long-Range Wide Mode Enable Long-Range Wide Scanning Objects can be placed up to 32quot; from the face of the scanner Surface Prep Surface Prep Prepare dark, shiny or transparent objects using included tools to help the lasers capture the data.
  4. 4. Paint Pens: Washes off most Powder: Talc Testing has also shown that a spray powder like Magnaflux Spotcheck SKD-S2 Developer works well for prepping objects prior to scanning. Here is a link to the site where you can purchase some. Magnaflux Buy Page Magnaflux Spotcheck Alignment Prep Alignment Prep It may be helpful prior to scanning to make alignment marks using the alignment pen. These marks will make it easier to place pins and identify locations on the object.
  5. 5. Gripping Secure the object for scanning using the AutoPositioner and PartGripper The PartGripper consists of three parts:
  6. 6. Arm - adjust the screws to rotate the height and length of the arm. Platter - adjust the screw to adjust the height of the PartGripper. Post - Secures arm and platter into base. Attaching PartGripper to AutoPositioner:
  7. 7. Tighten Platter to Post. Positon PartGripper into one of the four corner holes on AutoPositioner. Rotate Post clockwise (about 6 turns) to tighten PartGripper into AutoPositioner. For Large/Heavy objects: Screw Tribase to the base of AutoPositioner to better balance heavy objects. Two PartGrippers can be used to secure extra large objects. Note: The AutoPositioner must be free to rotate during scanning.
