Paper Abstract

Laser range sensors measure the 3D coordinates of points on the surface of objects. Range images taken from different points of view can provide a more or less complete coverage of an object's surface. The geometric information carried by the set of range images can be integrated into a unified, non-redundant triangular mesh describing the object. This model can then be used as the input to rapid prototyping or machining systems in order to produce a replica. Direct replication proves particularly useful for complex sculptured surfaces. The paper will describe the proposed approach and relevant algorithms, and discuss tow test cases.
