A new, handheld 3D surface scanner was developed especially for underwater use until a diving depth of about 40 meters. Additionally, the sensor is suitable for the outdoor use under bad weather circumstance like splashing water, wind, and bad illumination conditions. The optical components of the sensor are two cameras and one projector. The measurement field is about 250 mm x 200 mm. The depth resolution is about 50 μm and the lateral resolution is approximately 150 μm. The weight of the scanner is about 10 kg. The housing was produced of synthetic powder using a 3D printing technique. The measurement time for one scan is between a third and a half second. The computer for measurement control and data analysis is already integrated into the housing of the scanner. A display on the backside presents the results of each measurement graphically for a real-time evaluation of the user during the recording of the measurement data.
