A 3D scanner based on a monoscopic camera is presented in this paper. The scanner, CyberModeler, is capable of reconstructing 3D shapes as well as obtaining texture information of a target object form multiple camera views. The CyberModeler is a compact, easy-to-use, and inexpensive system because it does not require any special ray such as laser. Several new techniques are featured in the CyberModeler: voting-based Shape-from-Silhouette, calibration using the Hough method, and texture acquisition using an energy minimization technique. These lead to robust use in real-world environments as well as wide applicability to viewing applications. Our experiments showed that not only was the quality of the models generated high enough for viewing but also the modeling speed was at an acceptable practical level.
