    Hi Sabry
    Yes, it is possible, but if you want to load the scanner fully, then I recommend you to get the CLI version where this is solved very nicely.
    With CLI you can reconstruct models fully automatically, properly oriented and scaled, and also reuse it for reconstruction of hard to align projects.

    If you use the ordinary PROMO version, you can do it this way:
    D1 -> images with patterns
    D2 -> images for texturing

    1. when you have set everything and reconstructed a model from D1, then SAVE the project and exit or create a new project ( so that you do not have the actual dataset open in RC )
    2. move out D1 images from its actual folder somewhere else ( proper planning of data workflows )
    3. Open the same project again, it will ask you where are the MISSING images ( D1 ) and you just point it to the location of D2 images, then just use UNWRAP and texture for projecting proper textures.

    Many thanks for your simple and pragmatic advise...the CLI version would be indeed very useful ....as we may expect heavier scanning volume down the road...but being a startup we need to manage cost too for now...and test the market before upgrading our technology base (incl. software licensing)...I suggest you guys have been through a similar phase when CR was founded... :)

    I will test your advise and get back with any questions as needed...

    Hey Wishgranter, thanks very much for your advise and your approach works well. However, I have been experiencing a problem that the model is not loaded after I saved and reopened the project.
    I also tried to save another project and then reload the problem happened again. Just wondering have you ever experienced similar issue?
    Thanks very much!

    Regards,

    Hi Tantan Xie


    have you selected proper COMPONENT with that reconstructed model ?

    I had an issue with something similar where I needed to change the source images. If you name them something similar, say
    image_0001_scan
    image_0001_project

    or whatever, you can open the project file and search replace the image lines there to your new images.

    That is exactly where my problem is. I selected the proper component and now everything is working. Much appreciated!
