A Practical Structured Light Acquisition System for Point-Based Geometry and Texture

In Proceedings of the Eurographics/IEEE VGTC Symposium on Point-Based Graphics, pp. 89–98, 2005.


We present a simple and high-quality 3D scanning system based on structured light. It uses the common setup of a video projector, a computer-controlled turntable and a single camera. Geometry is acquired using a combination of gray code and phase-shift projections, and ... [More ...]
