In this paper, we present a novel, robust multi-view normal field integration technique for reconstructing the full 3D shape of mirroring objects. We employ a turntable-based setup with several cameras and displays. These are used to display illumination patterns which are reflected by the object surface. The pattern information observed in the cameras… (More)
In this paper, we propose a 3D reconstruction approach which combines a structured light based consistency measure with dense normal information obtained by exploiting the Helmholtz reciprocity principle. This combination compensates for the individual limitations of techniques providing normal information, which are mainly affected by low-frequency drift,… (More)

While there are many algorithms which address the reconstruction of partial surfaces from single-view normal fields, to the best of our knowledge, there is only one method [Chang et al., 'Multiview Normal Field Integration using Level Sets', CVPR 2007] which focuses on the reconstruction of the full shape of an object from multiple normal fields captured… (More)
