Calibrating the Creaform HandySCAN 3D Changes in the environment may affect the scanner calibration, mostly due to pressure or temperature variations. Optimizing the calibration allows you to get back to the initial measuring characteristics. VXelements includes an application to optimize the scanner calibration, available through Configure | Scanner | Calibration or by clicking on Scanner calibration in the main toolbar. Creaform will recommend doing this each time you use the scanner. An annual factory calibration is also recommended to keep […]
