Three-dimensional facial capture using a custom-built photogrammetry setup: Design, performance, and cost

Aug 20, 2020 by in Orthodontics Comments Off on Three-dimensional facial capture using a custom-built photogrammetry setup: Design, performance, and cost

Introduction Although stereophotogrammetry is increasingly popular for 3-dimensional face scanning, commercial solutions remain quite expensive, limiting its accessibility. We propose a more affordable, custom-built photogrammetry setup (Stereo-Face 3D, SF3D) and…
