What's new in ScanCenter 2021.1 release 


Key features:


Scanning

  • Improved scanning versatility and convenience by implementing the "Add to the selected group" option. 

    • During scanning, you can add incoming meshes to any group inside the project. It is available for all scanning modes including scanning with a turntable.

Processing

  • New "Combined smoothing" function added.

    • It performs fast local deletion of scanning defects, markers and other unnecessary artifacts as well as mending surfaces with holes, which significantly speeds up the preparation before creating a resulting model. Located in the Smoothing menu.

  • Improved brush selection of processed meshes

  • Renewed work logic in three-windowed manual alignment mode:

    • synchronized mesh display in different windows,

    • blocked movement of Fixed meshes,

    • added colour highlights for aligned meshes,

    • added multi-selection by Ctrl + Alt + LMB.

  • Expanded and improved Hole filling algorithm

    • significantly increased the border detection speed,

    • added two methods for filling holes with flat surfaces,

    • changed the approximation process of hole filling direction vector,

    • added noise deletion,

    • added deletion of up to three triangle rows around borders,

    • improved algorithm stability and surface patch quality.

  • Expanded the scaling functionality

    • increased the accepted coefficient range from 0,1 - 100 to 0,01 - 10 000,

    • added separate scaling coefficients for different coordinate axes,

    • added the option to simultaneously scale any number of selected meshes.


  • Improved surface texturing

    • added the texture pixels' weight values to the texture processing algorithms,

    • included the ability to turn off projected light during the texture capture phase.

Scene visualization

  • New mesh display option developed - Transparency

  • Improved visualization of meshes less than 5mm in size

  • Moved the tolerance scale settings to the interface

  • Moved the scene visualization settings to the interface

  • Added dimension lines for cylinder and sphere diameters

  • Improved mesh visualization in Perspective projection mode when Move to the centre option is activated

Service

  • Added the Help section containing links to educational content and software updates

  • Added the Hotkeys list

  • Moved the available software updates indicator to the interface

  • Moved the expert scanning and processing settings to a dedicated tab. The Vibration detection and Focus assessment settings have been moved to the expert settings tab.
