Computer-based 3-D imaging of hypothetical objects as a part of 3-D imaging techniques is a complex process comprising several stages from data capture to data presentation. All practical devices for computer-based 3-D imaging of hypothetical objects are systematized into groups characterized by similar ways of data capture and presentation. Limiting factors and drawbacks of current systems are analyzed.
