1. A method for projecting a laser image onto a three-dimensional work surface, comprising the steps of:

  • affixing a plurality of reflective targets onto the work surface;

    transmitting light toward the work surface;

    receiving reflected light from each of the plurality of reflective targets;

    using the reflected light to identify a general location for each of the plurality of reflective targets;

    using the general location to scan each of the plurality of reflective targets with a laser beam;

    receiving a reflected laser beam from each of the plurality of reflective targets;

    using the reflected laser beam to identify a precise location for each of the plurality of reflective targets; and

    using the precise location for each of the plurality of reflective targets to determine where to project.
