RE: [diy_3d_printing_and_fabrication] Re: Projector Calibration/ Lens Distortion
I don't know if it could be suitable for a projector calibration ,Avago and such are making great
optical sensors for pixels detection ,ex: laser mouses , ADNS series. maybe a less costly
and sized candidate device ?
my 2 cents
You can also use one optical sensor (one pixel) but project one pixel or region at a time. Baslically measuring each pixel one at a time.

I found this while searching for Projector Calibration
"On the fly projector calibration using high resolution camera"
that means they placed High resolution camera somewhere in the machine. it must face projector.(or they might be using 45 degree mirror with 99% transmittance like the NDYag guys use front and back mirrors)
Now what you guys thinks/tell from your experience 16MP Nikon like camera with ND filter would do the job for whole platform or not??
@Graham,Jon.. Please suggest an accurate/repeatable System.

I read about ND filters and i think i can get it from local camera shop. Do i need diffuser if i use ND filter/filters properly.The reason I suggested a diffuser is because I was talking about converting a camera into a sensor so the "image" you get is actually an average of the light hitting the sensor. The idea of an ND filter is just to reduce the light levels though as I mention on another thread you can do this by projecting darker images anyway I think.I want to make it clear that I am not suggesting trying to measure the output of a specific pixel on the projector but rather to get the average intensity over a fairly small area (because crappy webcam sensors are tiny) and then use a grid of these measurements to produce a correction which should be fairly smooth if the aberration is only caused by the optics.Cheers,Graham
