3D thumbnail printing and scaning

May 23, 2017 - 7:05am #1

Hi. I need some information.

I do not know how 3D scanning works.

Are the colors and symbols present in the scanned object important? Or is it only the physical form of the object that is taken into account?

Currently I have a model of a car made in 3D perfectly modeled with the actual measurements of a real car. If I make a 3D impression in miniature of this car, and then use the vuforia to scan this miniature object, I will succeed in recognizing the original car in my APP ?.

Thank you in advance to everyone who took the time to respond;

Thanks guys... (^.~)

I also responded to your similar question on another thread: https://developer.vuforia.com/forum/object-recognition/detecting-large-objects

The Object Scanner works by extracting natural feature keypoints from your object. This is similar to how the Target Manager processes 2D planar targets, but in this case it is a 3D object.

If you are looking to scale your object down such that it can be scanned, then it needs to a to-scale replica of the original. This includes any surface features (such as stickers or the like). Having exact color match should not matter, only that the locations and sizes of the colors are similar.

Hope this helps.
