Structured White Light

The performance of structured white light 3D scanners is similar to small object scanners, although less widespread because of their cost. Instead of using laser light they use structured white light according to known patterns illuminating the object. The object must be, like in small object scanners, reduced size. Textures can be adquired in the same way thanks to metric cameras integrated in the equipment. It gives very good results in smaller elements achieving accuracies of micron. Its use is widespread in the Industrial metrology and in heritage elements thanks to its agility and manual portability. Currently they are being used quite frequently in three-dimensional scanning of people for both cosmetic surgery and replica generation.
