Motive Calibration Doubles in size after calibrating

Post by Jessica Tardif » Tue Jun 26, 2018 8:10 am

Heya,

So I've been getting this problem lately when I've been calibrating my stage. Everything calibrates correctly, however it seems as though my stage doubles in size every time I calibrate, which is causing the data to become a lot noisier. What I've been doing to mend the problem temporarily is loading up a previous calibration that is the correct size and insuring that live reconstruction is turned on, which has been giving me good results.

I would however like to be able to do a calibration without having to worry about it doubling in size.

Thanks!

Hi Jessica Tardif,

You may want to verify the OptiWand setting, in the Camera Calibration pane, matches the size of your physical wand. If you are using a 250mm wand but have the calibration settings set to use a 500mm wand, this will double the scale of your data.

I hope this helps!
