Non-Contact, Three-Dimensional Object Digitizing Systems
The new field of non-contact 3-D object digitization has many applications in industry. The state of the art in technology uses electro-optic measurement techniques such as laser based triangulation and phase measurement projection Moire profilometry, for obtaining a non-contact, X-Y-Z coordinate representation of an object. This paper presents an overview of the theories of operation, as well as an analysis of a basic system. In a separate component, the performance issues, as well as potential applications within computer integrated manufacturing (CIM), are discussed. A market study for commercially available systems shows the technical specifications and capabilities, of the state of the art in 3-D object coordinate digitizing technology. A comparison of the different systems and approaches is presented as well.
