Abstract

There is a need of accurate anthropometric data of human head and face for both research and product designing. In past conventional measurements techniques were used to acquire anthropometric measurements for designing of products using scales, calipers, tapes which were less accurate and reliable, but with the advent of 3D scanner it has become very convenient for the researchers to acquire accurate 3D anthropometric head and face measurement. In the last three decades there has been a constant effort in optimizing the 3D scanners for improving its accurate and making it more user-friendly. This study discusses three different types of 3D scanners used for scanning head and face and tries to analyze their performance. The scanners included in the study are: Cyberware 3030 color scanner, Artec Eva 3D scanner and Structure sensor ST01 mode. The study provides an overview of possible advantages and limitations of all the three scanners.
