HellO!
I just bought a 24 inches table lazy susan for trying the Strata Photo 3D software. I would like to photograph some small objects first, to get an idea on how the program works. However, I was wondering about some things: 1) Do we have to use a pedestal for the things we photograph or not(is a pedestal a must)? 2) If we have to use a pedestal,I think that it does not have very good support and cannot hold bigger things? 3) what kind of matt, and pedestal would I use if I want to take photos of bigger things such as , chairs, monitors, laptops, people, etc.?

you just need to look around and find something you can use: thoughts for a larger pedestal: a 5 gallon bucket, or a heavy wastebasket, or a wash tub....

But, does the pedestal has to be in the middle of the mat(covering the white circle), or the pedestal may cover some of the dots on the matt?

I think in general if you need a bigger pedestal, you also need a bigger mat. I don't think it hurt if one or two dots are covered, but I would try to keep it to a minimum.

The dots comprise a binary code identifying the rotation of the mat and the object setting upon it. I would not recommend covering any dots.

Craft stores usually sell assorted sizes of foam cylinders, cones and other objects. Having a variety handy would help with different sized objects.
