Color coding for 3d measurement, more particularly for transparent scattering surfaces
A device and a method for determining three-dimensional surface coordinates of an object by means of optical color triangulation are proposed, wherein all lines of a color fringe pattern in each case have a width (br) set in such a way that, in a recorded image of the line, all contrast maxima (cmax), of all spectral components of a line are equal to a minimum contrast value (cmin) is provided. Proceeding from an invariable smallest width of a pattern line with a spectral component of highest contrast, further can be correspondingly widened.
