This page briefly reports the experiences carried out in legal medicine and in prosthetics applications.

All the examples share the common objective of producing a metrologically consistent description of the target surfaces, for documentation, visualization, measurement and reproduction. The quality of the models is determined by the measurement performances of the 3D sensor, the errors introduced by the alignement and the editing of the meshes, and the ability of the operator. In all the study cases, very high precision has been obtained and a good compromise between the adherence of the models to the original surfaces and the operator time.
