Most anthropometrical measurements today are based on using such standard tools as anthropometers, calipers and tape measures. Automatization of measurement process with high speed and accuracy using non-contact scanners can give significant benefit for industry and for customers. The problem of digital surface reconstruction and surface measurement is especially important in medicine: for facial surgery simulation, diagnosis of craniofacial anomalies, trauma to the head, and for reconstructive surgery. Different approaches and equipment have been developed for the solution of this problem; for example, the photogrammetric method based on the principle of rasterstereography , a moiré - based light projection system , and the 3D reconstruction system . All these methods are based on non-contact measurement principles. The surface digitization system based on a contact method is presented in . The systems described above have many unresolved problems, (such, for example, as a time consuming analysis of the pattern of the object in order to obtain its digital image ; a lengthy calibration procedure and intensive computation (off-line processing of data) ; huge size and weight, high cost of the system ; slow data acquisition and restricted accuracy due to friction of a probe with a surface ). Thus the need of a simple, cheap and fast 3D digital surface reconstruction system still exists today. The system presented in this paper allows one to solve these problems.
