The availability of rapid prototyping enhances a designer’s creativity and speed, enabling quicker development of new products. However, because this process relies heavily on CAD models it can often be time costly and inefficient when a component is needed urgently in the field. This paper proposes a method to seamlessly integrate the digitization of existing objects with the rapid prototyping process. Our technique makes use of multiple structured-light techniques in conjunction with photogrammetry to build a more efficient means of product development. This combination of methods allows our developed application to rapidly scan an entire object using inexpensive hardware.
