Structured Light Scanning

A structured-light 3D scanner is a device for measuring the three-dimensional shape of an object using projected light patterns and a camera system.

Projecting a narrow band of light onto a three-dimensionally shaped surface produces a line of illumination that appears distorted from other perspectives than that of the projector, and can be used for an exact geometric reconstruction of the surface shape (light section).

A faster and more versatile method is the projection of patterns consisting of many stripes at once, or of arbitrary fringes, as this allows for the acquisition of a multitude of samples simultaneously. Seen from different viewpoints, the pattern appears geometrically distorted due to the surface shape of the object.

Although many other variants of structured light projection are possible, patterns of parallel stripes are widely used. The displacement of the stripes allows for an exact retrieval of the 3D coordinates of any details on the object's surface.

Recently the 3D GraphLAB has acquired a Breuckmann SmartScan 3D HE (5 Mpixel)
