Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study is to optimize the 3D scanning process using a laser-free structured light surface scanner (Artec EVA). Methods: The hand was chosen to optimize scanning protocols and generate reliable high-quality surface scan models. Scanning comfort, ease of scanning and maximum scanning error were assessed in each hand position. Results & conclusion: Such an optimized scanning method shows the potential to obtain high-quality 3D hand scans quickly and reliably so that they can further be used for the development of bespoke 3D-printed medical devices for patients.
