In order to reconstruct the viewable surface o an object completely, multiple views of the same object have to be used and integrated into a common coordinate system. One of the major problems of the 3D surface reconstruction using a turntable, is the varying resolution in the direction to the camera, due to the varying distance of object points to the rotational axis of the turntable. To guarantee a uniform object resolution, we calculate the next angel dynamically, depending on the entropy of the surface part actually acquired. To minimize the loss of information and to guarantee a uniform surface resolution, we derive a relation between the entropy and the next viewing angle, based on the profile sections acquired in the last two steps of the acquisition.
