The end scan procedures in VTube-LASER are now enhanced to detect and remove outlier points in an end-scan.
In the context of VTube-LASER, an "outlier" is a point that falls outside the space of the actual surface being scanned.
The image at the right shows a side view of the result of an end-scan of a tube. The LLP (laser line probe) is positioned above the tube at the top of this image and is pointed downward in the direction of the left black arrow. The laser is moving downward along its path from the probe. It is then reflected back to the receiver of the scanner in the path of the right arrow.
Most of the points fall on the surface of the outside of the tube, inside the tube, or wall of the tube. However, there is also an outlier point present (enclosed in the red lines at the top). It cannot possibly part of the diameter. (These points were formed from a higher-than-normal reflective points on the inside of the diameter.
The outlier point is detected and then removed from the list of possibilities automatically because it is not close enough to the diameter or wall of the diameter.
This ensures repeatability of the end-scan process.
