This project was performed to demonstrate the feasibility of using an optical 3d range sensor based on fringe projection (OPL-3D) to acquire the shell of the Ferrari Mille Miglia shown in the figure. The point cloud were merged and the whole mash was obtained. A scaled copy of the shell was prototyped.
