This paper presents the case of 3D reconstructing an object using infrared imagery. Conversely to previous solutions that used the RGB imagery to make the 3D reconstruction and later superimpose the infrared, this paper makes use of the infrared imagery directly. The results of the reconstruction are then compared to an accurate laser scan of the object which provides a ground-truth. The results show that although it is still inaccurate this is mainly due to the low resolution of thermal imagery rather than their direct application for reconstruction.
