1 Significance A methodology that directly images the full three-dimensional shape of crystals within a crystalliser is reported. It is based on the mathematical principle that if the two-dimensional images of an object are obtained from two or more different angles, the full three-dimensional crystal shape could be reconstructed. A prototype instrument is built and proof of concept study carried out to demonstrate the potentials in using the system for three-dimensional measurement of crystal
