General Rules

Few tips you should always keep in mind in order to get the best and fastest results from your RealityCapture software:

Level of Detail and Precision

With RealityCapture you can get very accurate 3D models, even sub-millimeter resolution. What resolution will be my 3D model? This depends on quality and resolution of images, and distance from the object.

You can use this calculator to calculate the distance from the object in order to get the precision that you need. Please use this tool with caution. Whenever you need to work with a guaranteed precision, you should contact a photogrammetry professional.
