In many industrial design applications, it is necessary to track the positions and orientations of a static object in 3D space. This paper presents a method to quickly and accurately locate the placements of an object based on 3D scanning techniques. By registering geometric data from different scans, the affine transformation from the base position to an arbitrary position within the scanner working envelope can be found. Depending on differen types of applications, the placements of the scanner, the object and a reference object are discussed. Based on a series of experiments, the robustness of the presented method is verified and the errors, both in translation and in rotation, are identified. The possible applications of the presented method in industrial design are investigated as well.
