Description

The ROS In-hand scanner provides a 3D Scanning application based on the PCL In-hand scanner for small objects by Martin Sälzle and the PCL developers.

Original PCL Documentation can be found here:

http://pointclouds.org/documentation/tutorials/in_hand_scanner.php

The following video shows a scanning process using Intel RealSense Camera. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-EoR_OK9GCgcEw3V0l1ZnNPU2s/view

Dependencies

This package needs PCL 1.8.0 to be installed. For further information, see the following link: http://pointclouds.org/documentation/tutorials/compiling_pcl_posix.php#experimental

Usage

Some quick infos on how to use.

Start the ROS In-hand scanner:

roscore
rosrun ros_in_hand_scanner ros_in_hand_scanner_node

Due to performance issues, a realtime registration is very slow with down to < 0.1 fps. A workaround is to record a rosbag file during the scanprocess itself. You can use the preview window to get a view of your actual scan orientation. Play the rosbag file afterwards with a low rate ~0.1 and start registration now. Follow the hints in the PCL documentation for your scan process.
