Shape Capture Assisted by Traditional Tools



Abstract  We present new techniques for capturing the shape of physical objects using simple tools. From a set of caliper
distance measurements between object points, we reconstruct a three dimensional structure. We show that we can
refine the model using planar contours obtained with a gage that are placed in three dimensions using the caliper
measurements. We demonstrate that the model we construct can be used to assist optical approaches for model
capture.
