[Reconstruction of the mandibular model using a three-dimensional laser scanner].Di Yi Jun Yi Da Xue Xue Bao. 2004 Jul; 24(7):756-7.DY
To construct a three-dimensional (3D) mandibular model using a 3D laser scanner, and explore a new method for reconstructing the finite element geometry model.
A mandible specimen was scanned with the 3D laser scanner to form the point clouds of the mandibular surface, which were subsequently aligned for reconstruction of the mandibular model.
A 3D model of the mandible surface was reconstructed, which could be used for finite element simulation.
The 3D laser scanning system can be used to reconstruct the 3D model with irregular geometry for finite element simulation.
