Sunlight (๐ŸŽž Video)

Sunlight has a substantial amount of infrared light, which can interfere with the way the camera senses depth data. This is true even on cloudy days.

As a result, scanning in or near sunlight can cause:

  • Alignment issues - Alignment errors and misalignments. Learn more.
  • Poor 3D geometry - Holes in the Dollhouse and Floorplan Views

Minimize Bright, Direct Sunlight Inside

Even sunlight reflected off a wall or floor can cause issues.

If theย siteย has lots of sunlight coming inside, try:

  • Partially block the light with blinds, curtains, or shades
  • Time your visit appropriately (wait or return) when there are no bright spots
