Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9957597A2] The aim of the invention is to provide a device for producing three-dimensional images of objects using optical scanners in conjunction with data processing devices, as well as a method for controlling and operating optical scanners. To this end a computer comprises a software-controlled optical flat-bed scanner with a non-parallel or parallel optical imaging system, which is fitted with additional apparatus or modified, exchangeable apparatus parts for positioning the objects whose image is to be acquired or for optimizing the illumination of the objects for the three-dimensional representation. The computer comprises a special display unit for three-dimensional representation or a standard display unit. The object is acquired sequentially and/or simultaneously in at least two acquisition modes and the scanner device is controlled to this end. The data of the sequential and/or simultaneous image acquisition are stored and/or computer-processed after completion of the scanning process or partly during the scanning process, so as to yield a spatial model.
