How to use the New Mesh Editing function for Einscan HX

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

Unlike other post-process functions which only do a single operation, “Mesh Optimization” can 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.

From left to right are original data / 20% / 50%/ 100% optimization.
Instructions to Mesh Optimization - data comparison
You can see that surface noise was well removed under 100% optimization, but the edges of the letters are still sharp.

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

Instructions to Mesh Optimization - optimized data
Same intensity from left to right while the resolution is 1mm.
You can tell that the details on feathers are hard to tell with 100% optimization.

Shining suggest using high intensity for high resolution and low intensity for low resolution – if the resolution is beyond 1mm, we do not recommend applying mesh optimization.
