Research on 3D Reconstruction of the Facial Surface Reverse Engineering
According to the surface integration of laser technology and computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing technology (CAD & CAM), a method that is rebuilt surface of three-dimensional facial reconstruction has been explored. A laser scanning system is used to collect the 3D discrete point data of the facial model, which will be cut up by their characteristics and curvature in order to make a 3D face reconstruction. The maximum reconstructive error is 0.2174mm. Application results indicate that the proposed method is quite satisfactory for facial reconstructive surgery, rehabilitation design and plastic surgery.
