single rigid body in middle of volume noise

by johnsonthomasson » Mon Apr 23, 2018 6:01 pm

We've begun experiencing considerable noise, especially in rotation, in the simplest of tracking circumstances, a single rigid body with 5 markers. We've used our volume for several years and are familiar with the noise that occurs as you approach the edges of the volume, but this is different.

We have 36 Prime 13s on a 20'x40' volume with passive markers. We recently did a thorough re-aiming (the noise started before this). Our calibrations land in the "exceptional" zone. We don't believe this is a sync issue.

We have played with the reconstruction settings and device settings, but haven't found any magical combinations. Does anyone have any suggestions for approaches to identifying the cause of the noise?
