Why do I need to spray powder before 3D scan objects with certain features like highly reflective, shining black surfaces, transparency or mirror-like?

The scanning spray powder is used to effectively improve the scanning result and make the scanning experience smoother. Some scanned objects with certain features such as black and shining surfaces, highly-reflective surfaces, transparent surfaces, and mirror-like surfaces tend to be difficult to scan, by using scanning spray powder, the high-accuracy point cloud data could be obtained easier.
