  • Flat Surface Scan Speeds

    I'm scanning a flat surface and am wondering if there is a formula for figuring scan speeds.

    I'm running a Leitz LSPX1S T head with a 1x30 probe tip.
    I'm neeeewwwwwwww!!!

    I'm giving 'er all she's got capt'n. I personally use the same speed for "NO CAD" scanning, no matter what it is scanning, and the same speed for "CAD" scanning, no matter what it is scanning.

    I use 6mm/sec for 'got cad' scanning and 2mm/sec for no cad scanning. Not sure that it makes any difference, just don't try to go faster than the controller's max.

      we would always prefer never to scan perpendicular to whatever surface you're scanning. Introduces harmonic vibrations. If you have the ability to articulate the wrist at any angle other than perpendicular, go for it.

      scan speeds depend on your surface and a few other things but i would usually stick to 10-25mm/s or so.

        You can use filtering on the constructed feature...
