Abstract

3D imagination of human's organs has become feasible by digital image processing techniques and algorithms via CT or MRI images in recent years. In this study, a new method for reverse engineering and biomodelling of hard tissues by CATIA cloud points' concept has been considered. Comparing with the current softwares (e.g. BioBuild or Mimics) has shown the new method's easiness of implementing and modelling, final model's high accuracy, easiness of data exchanging with the rapid prototyping systems and reduction of need for having anatomical background for interpreting the CT or MRI images.
