    Well what normally you would need to do is shoot it clean, don't move it. Make it dirty (but not completely covered (cause RC has to see some of the source object to align it together) and then import both datasets where clean goes Alignment enabled Meshing disabled Texturing enabled and Dirty will be Alignment enabled Meshing enabled and Texturing Disabled. If you cover it completely with the coating or dirt you will need the control points. Also as mentioned above you cannot be moving the subject while shooting the passes. That's the whole magic.

    in itself it is a fixed object on a stick, the object is the same against a white background (turn-table photography).

    I have also done the described workflow, but unfortunately I am forced to work with CPs. But can CPs in a dataset affect the mesh?

    And what if I didn't include the photos where I put the CPs in the 'meshing' images, would that solve the problem of an ugly reconstruction?

    Well the CPs can have both good and bad influence, but normally if they're done right and they don't present big errors in pixel values shown next to the images under them they should only help. What you do normally is you have two components in the one project. you put control points on the images of one component and then again some on the other. Then you hit align again and the components should connect to a big full one.

    I have updated this post. I managed to combine the mesh model with the shiney texture in one component. Textured and exported the model. Tried to open it in meshmixer to see the result. Usually when exporting, the model opens together with the texture in meshmixer. But with this model it seems to open without texture, but with a red surface. Does anyone have an idea what seems to be the problem and how to overcome this. Does meshmixe not support shiny textures or does the whole RC combining the mesh of one with the texture of another data set be the problem?

    regards,

    I cannot speak for Meshmixer, maybe even there could be an issue, but first let me investigate what could happen on our side.
    Could you please give me a screenshot of your export settings you would use here with all the dropdown menus extended?
