Refined Scan



In some cases, detailed information should be provided for careful design, for instance, crown design. However, the redundant data of scanning results will be trimmed based on the concern of storage space, leading to insufficient data for design. The software provides a function to save the data of specific areas without post-processing to meet the needs of the design. This guide presents the utilization and effects of the function, refined scan.
