Instructions to Mesh Optimization

August 5, 2021

From the last HX v1.2.0.2 update for EinScan HX Hybrid Blue Laser & LED Light Source Handheld 3D Scanner, we add a new mesh editing function . In this article you will learn more about the Instructions to Mesh Optimization and the outcome.

Not like other post-process function which only do a single operation, “Mesh Optimization” do both smooth and sharpen which will eliminate surface noise while keeping sharp details. You can choose the operation intensity from 0 to 100%. And you can do multiple iterations if not satisfied with current outcomes.

This function performs well when the original data has a small point distance. For example, here’s a part of the tires scanned with 0.2mm resolution.

Das Oberflächenrauschen bei der 100%iger Optimierung wurde gut entfernt, aber die Kanten der Buchstaben sind immer noch scharf.

However, on a large point distance model, the details are already blurred. Using high optimization intensity will cause detail loss. Here is an example.

Schnitzerei Mesh
Gleiche Intensität von links nach rechts bei einer Auflösung von 1 mm. Man kann erkennen, dass die Details der Federn bei einer 100%igen Optimierung schwer zu erkennen sind.

All in all, we suggest using high intensity for high resolution and low intensity for low resolution. Hope this function can help you get a good scan result easier. And if the resolution is beyond 1mm, we do not recommend applying mesh optimization.
