Scanning white digital ABS Tips

Post by SIntern2023 »


I'm new to the forum so sorry if this isn't formatted correctly.

I am currently trying to figure out the best way to scan prints from white digital abs and would appreciate insights from anyone who has found a good process. I currently use the Artec Space Spider to scan and Helling 3D scanning spray. I know the material is too reflective/somewhat translucent to scan well so I am using the spray, but since the spray is white and so is the material, I keep missing pieces or not coating it enough. If I turn the scanner sensitivity very high then it can pick it up better, but still not perfectly and I end up with a lot of noise in my scan. I wish there was a colored scanning prep spray but so far have not found anything of the sorts. Let me know if you have any tips!

there is a AESUB spray version that just dulls the surface rather than white
