An innovative low-cost and flexible 3D scanning system

Objective

The three-dimensional optical measurement of objects and surfaces is a state of the art technology in many industries like the automotive or medical sector. It is used for the reverse engineering process, the quality management and new fields of application like inspection and accelerated development process. The total cost of such a system ranges from 25T€ to 200T€ making it almost not affordable for SMEs which can therefore not benefit from this technology compared to LEs. White light hand-scanner systems which do not require a high-cost position tracking system are becoming more important having high potential for a boost in this market. The accurate and easy creation of three dimensional images of real objects is achieved by sequential measured surface scans. Existing 3D white light scanners suffer from complex manual post-processing due to inaccurate measured data and technical limited number of surface scans. The goal is to create a system with remarkable advantages compared to existing scanning devices. A method and technology for the continuously real-time 3D white light scanning will be developed. The innovation will focus on the ability of full automated accurate processing of the surface data.
