  • This is a link to a referenced document which provides more technical detail about 3D optical scanning 3D-Scanning.pdf
  • General remarks on the Ishi cylinders: the signal amplitudes are typically small, only a few microns, and there is considerable mold damage to the surface. In some cases this is localized while it others it is widespread. Source is T drive folders.
