Structured Light 3D Scanners

Provided by: ToolingU

A structured light scanner is a type of 3D optical measuring device used to record an object's geometry. Structured light scanners gather measurements by projecting an LED light pattern onto an object and capturing its shape with multiple cameras. The captured images are then reconstructed to create a 3D model. Structured light scanners are used for many applications in manufacturing, including inspection, GD&T analysis, and reverse engineering processes. After taking this class, users will be able to describe structured light scanners and how they function.
