Understanding 3D Technology
Haven’t you ever wondered what 3D technology is really all about? Most of our reference of 3D technology comes from the 3D movies that are all a furore nowadays. The critical difference between those and 3D smart cameras, arises from converting 2D to 3D as opposed to acquiring in 3D. Through the use of a process called Triangulation, a point cloud image of the object can be obtained to get the shape of the component in x, y, z co-ordinates.
Take a look at this great document link from LMI Technologies, our partners, explaining the basics of 3D Technology.
