In this post we show you the right behavior to get an optimal facial scan with ObiScanner.
In particular, we will analyse the question of the model’s skin colour, suggesting the right lighting.

Correct skin color

To obtain the correct skin color for your 3D model, you must scan in a room that is not exposed to too many light sources. Using the integrated ObiScanner lights, optimal facial scanning is achieved without having to have other light sources behind or on the patient’s face.
