It is described a technique where different views of an object are connected to recover its three-dimensional form in a field of vision of 360°. The object is placed on a rotary motorized platform and projected a linear fringe pattern. In each angular object displacement, the projected fringe pattern is captured by a camera CCD. Each pattern is digitally demodulated providing information of depth. The format of the digital matrix, this is, the image type, is changed for one of triads (x, y, z). This way, a cloud of independent points of their position in the matrix is constructed. As a reference, one point in each cloud (known it a priori), is taken. All the clouds are rotated and displaced until the reference point taking its corresponding position. Different mixed clouds of points (views) are ordered in a single triad matrix that describes the complete surface of the object surface target. Finally a mesh of quadrilaterals is built up that makes possible to generate a solid surface.
