Project and project group¶
To start scanning, you need to create / open a project group. Project group is the standard file structure of the software, it contains one project or more. Each project contains the scan data of its own.
|One object in the scene, one align mode for the object||One project in the group||Only need one project to finish the scan|
|Multiple objects in the scene, all can align with the same mode||One project in the group||only need one project to finish the scan|
|Multiple objects in the scene, need different align mode||One project for each object||The objects might be different in material or need different align mode|
|A big object in the scene||One project for one part of the object||Scan different part and align together|
|One object in the scene but needs different align mode in different part||One project for each part of the object||Scan different part and align with different mode|
