Reconstruction and Mesh Simplification of Tooth Model
A method for reconstruction of tooth model based on rotate scanning using structured light match technology was proposed. And an algorithm of mesh simplification of the surface point of tooth model using section lines sampling with fixed angles was achieved, which can provide regular surface mesh points for finite element method (FEM). Experiments showed that the method and algorithm could generate accurate surface mesh model which can provide excellent data support for finite element biomechanical model analysis.
