Introduction-Many of the problems facing 3d scanning as a digitisation method around the human form are caused by the time it takes to scan the entity. This can be solved by using multiple cameras organised in a way to scan the extremity simultaneously from multiple directions. This paper is the exploration around the minimum number of cameras needed to obtain a usable model. Methodology-Using a 5-stage experimental process for 17 subjects and batch processing each stage, determined the most efficient workflow. Results-Excluding the exploration subject, it was found that the use of 4 cameras simultaneously was 5.5 times faster, including processing time then it was to use a single camera. Conclusion-using multiple cameras makes the process 5.5 times faster, as well as batch processing, and having a standardised method to enable the use of algorithmic file processing.
