What is Registration?
Registration is like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. Make sure each scan has significant overlap with each other, so you can ensure the best fit. You register in pairs, so it’s best to have a main area that acts as the main reference ‘R’ scan.
Register in pairs to the Reference scan (R)
If working on a large project, >10 scans, then you can have multiple clusters of scans each with their own reference scan
- Make sure you have at least 10%-15% overlap between scans
- For a hallway 20 feet is sufficient
- For building exteriors 25-50 ft is better
- The Reference scan should be in a central location that’s easy to connect to multiple areas
