Paper Abstract

This article presents a way of scanning three-dimensional (3-D) objects using noninvasive and contact loss techniques. The principle is to project parallel fringes on an object and then to record the object at two viewing angles. With an appropriate treatment one can reconstruct the 3-D object even when it has no symmetry planes. The 3-D surface data are available immediately in digital form for computer visualization and for analysis software tools. The optical setup for recording the object, the data extraction and treatment, and the reconstruction of the object are reported and commented on. Application is proposed for reconstructive/cosmetic surgery, CAD, animation, and research.
