3D laser scanning technology captures the digital shape of physical objects through the use of Laser Triangulation Technology. An object is scanned by a plane of laser light coming from the source aperture. The plane of light is swept across the field of view by a mirror, rotated by a precise galvanometer. The laser light is reflected from the surface of the scanned object. Each scan line is observed by a single frame. Many 3D data points are collected and stored as a cloud of points which represent the scanned data.
