3-D scanning has become increasingly popular in a wide range of applications. We present a prototype 3-D/stereoscopic scanning system based on a cheap, readily available flatbed scanner. Stereoscopic imaging is achieved by modifying the optical path of the ordinary flatbed scanner. The results of 3-D imaging using our prototype system are demonstrated, and a number of design alternatives are discussed.
