3D Laser Triangulation

Laser based 3D scanners use a process called trigonometric triangulation to accurately capture a 3D shape as millions of points. Laser scanners work by projecting a laser line or multiple lines onto an object and then capturing its reflection with a single sensor or multiple sensors.

Types of 3D Scanners and 3D Scanning Technologies:

  1. Short Range 3D Scanners Short Range 3D scanners typically utilize a Laser triangulation or Structured Light technology.
  2. Laser based 3D Scanners Laser based 3D scanners use a process called trigonometric triangulation to accurately capture a 3D shape as millions of points. Laser scanners work by projecting a laser line or multiple lines onto an object and then capturing its reflection with a single sensor or multiple sensors.

Benefits of 3D Laser Scanners:

  • Able to scan tough surfaces, such as shiny or dark finishes
  • Less sensitive to changing light conditions and ambient light
  • Often more portable
  • Simpler design – easier to use and lower cost
