By combining the 3D imagecapture and printingtechniques, there is hugepotential to achieve “WhatYou See Is What You Get”processing.
In the last decade, additive manufacturing technology, including three-dimensional (3D) printing has developed dramatically. Colour 3D printing has also evolved to produce full spectrum coloured solid objects utilising a range of materials. With the evolution of various 3D imaging techniques, accurate acquisition and transformation of target object geometric data into 3D digital models can be achieved. By combining the 3D image capture and printing techniques, there is huge potential to achieve “What You See Is What You Get” processing. it has the ability to directly interconnect with advanced manufacturing techniques, allowing customization with excellent accuracy resulting in savings of both time and costs. There has been the huge potential to develop the automatic additive manufacture technology for facial prosthetics..
