The point cloud looks good -- How did you do it ?
Right now I have been lucky enough to obtain an ancient, working FARO arm and I have been researching for a while about making a 3D laser line scanner probe for the end of it. Im fairly handy with the mechanical bits - but fall short on the software side of things.
Ive seen a ton of companies that seem to make their scan probe with a red line laser projecting perpindicular to a pair of cmos sensors (mounted at angle, but fixed relative to the line laser). Seems like this type of thing wouldnt be hard to build - but I have no idea where to start on the software side to get an array of points out of two web cams and a red line. do you have any ideas ?
hope you don't think im hijacking your thread .... seems like breaking up the project would be a good start - the arm part is relatively easy compared to the scan head (in my opinion)
