The purpose of this research is to develop a process and an algorithm to create a 3D model of the surface a part. This is accomplished using a single camera and a CNC machine as a movable stage. A gradient based focus measure operator written in MATLAB is used to process the images and to generate the surface model. The scopes of this research are image processing and surface model generation as well as verifying part accuracy. The algorithm is able to create a rough surface model of a photographed part, and with careful calibration in a limited number of scenarios has been used in checking part z dimensions.
