RTC 360 Images

Post by sdhudson »

Hello,

I appreciate this is something I can test for myself, but to save wasting time, can anyone advise where I should stand when using an RTC360 to capture images, so that I don't appear in all of them!

Which camera lens(es) are actually being used to take the images?

If I stand perpendicular to the line of site of the scanner mirror, is this a safe blind spot to be?

Thanks!

Zoot allures*, blimey!--I had no idea that RTC360's 'quirks' began with this basic issue! Send it back to the kitchen...good Lord! :lol:

It moves so fast, you may as well sit on the ground underneath it. Don't even try merging scans as you go if you are using Cyclone field 360. Work in a group and then Download them in a bunch at a time to see your progress.

stay in line with the screen on the scanner. And if you cant see the center of the scanner it can't see you!
