Find answers for common questions about PhotoDIGITIZER and Gemini experience
Gemini PhotoDIGITIZER is a tool that allows you to convert the printed or paper patterns to an electronic format. For this, you need a camera and a contrast surface. The camera is to be connected to a computer where Gemini PhotoDIGITIZER is installed. As soon as the picture has been captured, the application converts the image to geometrical shapes and technical elements.
When first using Gemini PhotoDIGITIZER, it is necessary to calibrate the camera. This operation must be repeated every time you change the position or any of the camera settings.
To calibrate a camera, you need a grid or you can enter a horizontal and a vertical dimension for the picture. For a precise calibration, it is recommended to use a printed grid. The most important steps for a correct calibration are: – Capture or load the grid picture – Edit the calibration parameters (enter the cell width and cell height in the calibration window). – Crop the image, if necessary. – Check the calibration result, and adjust, if necessary.
The pattern can be converted very quickly to an electronic format because you just take a picture, no longer covering all piece shapes and technical elements. The conversion is automatically made by Gemini PhotoDIGITIZER. If you use a camera, you can save the entire space required by a classic digitizer. The geometrical shapes of the patterns can be saved to many file formats
