  • Operation in the presence of large metal objects or electromagnetic fields may interfere with the scanner’s tracking, and degrade performance. Because scanning relies on the camera in the wand seeing the laser line, some surfaces may not be suitable for laser scanning, e.g., translucent, transparent, reflective, dark, or deeply convoluted surfaces. Surfaces may be treated with substances such as paint, talcum powder, or chalk dust to enhance laser camera sensitivity.
