As electronic documents are becoming more and more popular, variety of objects, including 2D and 3D objects such as articles, books and 3D-shapes, can be easily contained in a document. Conventional systems cannot capture these objects as a 3D form. We developed a new image capturing system with 3D information for deskwork. It is an assemblage of a normal digital camera and its docking station designed for easy operation. The docking station swings the attached camera tilting step by step. Within a few steps, it covers the whole object automatically. Then each frame is combined together into one complete image with full resolution. In order to get precise 3D structure, stripe patterns are projected by a modified flash light attached on the camera. The resolution rises by means of the swing to be slipped the patterns on the object. Using the obtained 3D data we can reconstruct a correct image from a splay surface image such as a book. Experimental Results of image mosaicing and 3D reconstruction shows that the system is practical.
