New DAVID Version 2.4.2
Finally, the new grabber has found its way into DAVID! It makes DAVID 2.4
compatible to more different cameras and performs faster on most hardware.
Give it a try!
As usual, there are some more nice improvements both for beginners and
We have improved lens un-distortion and calculation of the 3D laser light
plane position, reducing deformations and waviness of scan data.
*Default camera parameters included*
Setting up the camera parameters is one of the most difficult steps
for beginners. For some camera models, DAVID has default parameters that
will help you get started. Of course some adjustments will be necessary,
since every setup is different...
For those who automate their scanning setups, DAVID has improved
capability of communicating over a (virtual) COM port in both directions.
You can control many DAVID functions remotely, or even synchronize single
camera frames to laser motor steps, which is especially interesting for
Scanning Without Background!
