    [1]. Volumetric accuracy refers to the relationship between 3D data accuracy and object size; the accuracy is reduced by 0.3mm per 100cm.
    The conclusion is obtained by measuring the center of sphere under marker alignment.
    [2]. Select this alignment when scanning objects with rich geometrical features on the surface.
    [3]. Hybrid alignment means marker alignment and feature alignment can be switched automatically.
    [4]. This alignment needs Color Pack assisting, and requires rich color texture information on the surface of the object.
