Paper Abstract

A grating pattern projected onto an object deforms in accordance with the three-dimensional shape of the surface. This deformed image can be analyzed by detecting the shifted phase of the original grating pattern with the aid of Fourier transformation. The profile of the object is expressed in moiré contours as well as in a wire-frame model for the intuitive understanding of the shape. In this procedure, multiplication and visibility enhancement of moiré fringes are performed with an improved result.
