Step-by-step

How does it work?

Step 1

Fabric

YOUR FABRIC

Find a physical fabric that you want to digitise. Position the fabric on a flat surface at a suitable height for you to comfortably take photos of it.

Step 2

CAMERA

CAMERA & FLASH

Get your camera and flash ready. No expensive dedicated machinery or equipment needed. Use a camera you already have, buy one in an electronics store near you, borrow/rent from someone you know, or order one as part of the Bandicoot onboarding kit

Step 3

PRO CHART

SCAN FROM A5 - B0 SIZE

Position the PRO Chart over the fabric area that you want to digitise. Use an appropriately sized chart that fits your fabric/pattern repeat. Charts are available in sizes up to 1m.

Step 4

SHOOT

MOVE AROUND THE FABRIC

Scan your fabric by taking a series of flash photos of the fabric and chart from a range of different angles. Bandicoot will automatically detect the precise angle of each photo when we process the scan.
