                         We introduce a planarity constraint for reconstruction, based on 
                         the fact that all points observed on a laser line in an image are 
                         on the same plane of laser light in 3D. This plane of laser light 
                         linearly parametrizes the homography between a pair of images of 
                         the same laser line, and this homography can be recovered from 
                         point correspondences derived from epipolar geometry. Points 
                         visible from multiple views can be reconstructed via triangulation 
                         and projected onto this plane, while points visible in only one 
                         view can be recovered via ray-plane intersection. The use of the 
                         planarity constraint during reconstruction increases the system's 
                         accuracy, and using the planes for reconstruction increases the 
                         number of points recovered. Additionally, an interactive scanning 
                         environment is constructed, where incremental reconstruction is 
                         used to provide continuous visual feedback. Reconstructions with 
                         this method are shown to have higher accuracy than standard
