Evaluating the quality of a 3D scan of the human body in real time: An NSERC Alliance grant for Denis Laurendeau
Our IID member, Denis Laurendeau, of the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Université Laval, has obtained an Alliance grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) for the research project involving real-time evaluation of the quality of a 3D scan of the human body.
Real-time evaluation of the quality of a 3D scan of the human body
Denis Laurendeau was awarded an Alliance grant from NSERC for his research project entitled “Real-time evaluation of the quality of a 3D scan of the human body”.
Custom manufacturing is a growing trend in manufacturing, and is particularly evident in the manufacturing of custom prosthetics, orthotics or sports (or other) equipment. Through this research project carried out in collaboration with TechMed3D, Professor Laurendeau aims to explore an approach to assess and display in real time the quality of the 3D scanning carried out in the processing chain leading to this personalized manufacturing.
