3D Scan Gallery

All these scans have been done with one of the OpenScan devices and either my FujiS100FS (till mid 2019) and then with the Pi Camera (8mpx and sometimes 12mpx). Most scans show the raw and unmodified result. Some of the scans had to be combined from two individual scans, but I have never spend more then 20 minutes on a single scan (manual post-processing). Usually, one set of images contains between 100 and 200 photos.

I have used various programs to create the results: Meshroom, VisualSFM + Cloudcompare, Reality Capture and besides some massiv reconstruction time differences, the overall results are quite similar.
