Calibration is typically done once every couple of uses. It is only required when the cameras have been moved from their current positions, or if the camera focus/zoom is altered. If you conduct a scan and notice that the cameras are not picking up all of the data, then that is usually a sign the cameras need to be calibrated as well. At least 30 captures are needed to complete calibration. More calibration captures can be done to increase the % coverage. An acceptable coverage range for our purposes is 85 to 90%.
If either of the cameras on the tripod are physically moved by unscrewing them from the mount and repositioned, calibration must be done again from scratch. Do not unscrew the cameras from the mount or move them in any way once calibration has been started and completed
*NOTE* The cameras seem to be a little offset and will not perfectly align. You can try placing something in between the base and the camera to offset this balance before starting calibration, but they will not be completely perfect.
Place the Calibration Board on the center of the turntable with the 3mm side facing the camera.
