Foot Shape Reconstruction Based on a Monocular System Using Structured Light Projection
Reverse engineering has an increasing use in shoemaking process for rapid prototyping of shoe lasts. Foot shape reconstruction is one of the most important techniques in custom-made scheme. A system for reconstruction a foot shape from its 2D views using a coded structured light projection combining with the optical triangulation method is presented. A set of multiple gray coded patterns are projected to the target object through a projector and the distorted stripes patterns produced by its surface are captured by a digital camera. By adopting the optical triangulation method with the projector-camera parameters known in advance, the foot shape surface is reconstructed. The results show that the implemented system is able to reconstruct dense and precise 3D foot shapes.
