Inspection of 3D scans in VR

POSTED 10/14/2021


Skeletex Research s.r.o.



There was a lack of software for the inspection of 3D scans in VR, and the scans could only be viewed on standard 2D monitors.




PhoXi 3D Scanner

The solution uses a Photoneo PhoXi 3D Scanner with the PhoXi API and PhoXi Control. It is deployed on a Windows machine with a sufficient GPU and appropriate VR headset (tested on the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive).



The solution allows users to visually inspect high-quality 3D scans and view them up-close in VR, fix alignment errors, and delete outliers for the purpose of 3D reconstruction.

It was a pleasure for Skeletex Research to work with the high-quality data produced by the Photoneo 3D scanner and develop a novel way of visualizing and editing it in a VR environment. The application is documented here.
