Abstract

3D data is the main element of three-dimensional models that are commonly used in many different application areas such as architecture, archeology, medicine, film production, reverse engineering, etc. In this study, we discuss designing and utilizing opportunities for a low-cost triangulation-based laser scanner. To evaluate the system, a test object is specially designed, and the accuracy and operation of the system are verified by comparing the data output of the laser scanner with the terrestrial photogrammetric method. The designed system is also verified using different objects. At the end of the study, we calculate the precision of the scanned sample models to be 0.1-0.2 mm and RMS, 0.59 mm.
