This thesis discusses deflectometry as a reconstruction method for highlyreflecting surfaces. It explains the measurement process and principle and provides a crash course into an efficient mathematical representation of the principles involved. Using this, it reformulates existing three-dimensional reconstructing methods, expands upon them and develops new ones. Building on these novel techniques, an auto-calibration is introduced that is able to refine a rough extrinsic calibration.
