3D Preview

Also referred to as “preview model.” A 3D preview is a 3D model processed with a minimum viable amount of data to provide a customer with a 3D model they can “preview” within a few minutes of their scan. Since preview models use less data than full-resolution models, they have significantly degraded quality. 3D previews are necessary because a full-resolution 3D model can take up to 24 hours to process from a raw dataset.
