Post-processing at Wacom Mobile Studio Pro

The corresponding video tutorial shows how to 3D scan a couch with Artec Studio Ultimate using Intel RealSense sensor built in Wacom Mobile Studio Pro. This clip features basic scenario: Real-time fusion, Base removal and Texturing.

In more advanced cases, you may want either to process scans manually, or scan without Real-time fusion. Consult the diagram below to become familiar with the big picture (red boxes indicate steps featured in the video tutorial).

 
 
General Information
When you scan with Intel RealSense at Wacom computer, the default scanning mode is Real-time Fusion. This means you build your 3D model as you scan. The software processes your data as you capture it and you will end up with a complete 3D model. However, if you need a more thorough 3D model, you may process scans either manually or by using Autopilot.
 
If you use scans from Real-time fusion session, don’t forget to clear the eye flag near the model called Scan1-Fusion before you start processing.
 
 
 
Using Autopilot
  1. Tap Autopilot in the left sidebar, then tap OK 
  2. Autopilot prompts you to select scans. Tap Next.
  3. In the Model creation dialog, specify the following parameters (use the (?) buttons to open the detailed tips):
    • Decide on the Object size by referring to the image samples.
    • Leave out the default values for the remaining options in this window for most of the cases.
    • Select the Texture resolution checkbox if you need a textured model.
  4. Next step will prompt you to edit your model. If you see any extraneous object or surfaces, tap Next. Otherwise, tap Skip this step.
  5. Select the desired erasure mode. Tap 2D selection if you’re unsure.
  6. Ensure that you configured the Pad Pen and ExpressKeys as it is suggested below.
  7. Hit this ExpressKey that is assigned to Ctrl .
  8. While still holding Ctrl, aim Pen’s nib at the screen and adjust the Eraser size by pressing Pen’s upper or lower switch side
  1. Then still holding Ctrl, touch with Pen’s nib the model’s region that you want to erase
  2. Tap Erase
  3. Tap Next. If the object was captured over several scans, Autopilot will align them and show you the result. You can approve it or align the scans manually.
  4. Tap Next and wait for a model to appear in the right panel.
  5. Mark it with the eye flag and clear the flag from the other scans.
  6. You’re done.
 
Obtaining Model Manually
You can also follow the post-processing steps manually, as the diagram prescribes. Consult the respective coverage in the User manual. 
 
 
Using Model for Measurements
As the video suggests, you can measure the model in Artec Studio.
Open the Measures, then select one of the following:
    • Linear for distance calculation (points are connected by lines)
    • Geodesic for distance calculation (points are connected by curves that pass over the model surface)
    • Sections for area and volume calculation. For more info, see this article.
 
Exporting Model
Other applications include exporting and publishing model. To export the model:
  1. Open File → Export mesh.
  2. Select the required format (OBJ is the most common one), specify the folder and file name, then tap OK.

 

Configure Wacom tablet (optional)

For a better user experience with Artec Studio on Wacom, assign keystrokes to the tablet keys and side switch of the Pro Pen as it is described here.
