3D SURFACE RECONSTRUCTION OF HUMAN BODY PARTS BASED ON 2D COMPUTERIZED TOMOGRAPHY SCANS
Publication Date : 10/09/2021
This study explores the technique that obtains the 3D contour of a human form using reverse engineering method on a dummy (or) mannequin. The purpose of reverse engineering is to create a CAD model based on a physic of existing objects. The mannequin is scanned using a CT scan machine. The point clouds captured by CT scan machine is used to reconstruct the 3D model of the human body. The scanned data is taken as an input to Materialize Interactive Medical Image Control System (MIMICS) software which creates slice by slice model from CT scan data. The structural model of the body can be utilized for varied purposes like: Pattern making for moulds, checking the fitness (sizes) of the produced garments, determine the volume of the sculpture objects, estimation of human body surface area, and exhibiting (show case) the garment.
