How to Scan an AR15 Magazine

Introduction: How to Scan an AR15 Magazine

Here are a few pictures of my scan test on a PMAG 30.

To scan the magazine you have to set it up on the scan table. It's best to cover the magazine with a white chalk as these are typically very dark and the scanner doesn't like to pick up the data points very well. Align the scans once you have completed them until you have a complete 3D scan.
