Abstract

A camera based image capturing and 3D reconstruction system for human body modeling is presented. The system is essentially based on shape from contour and uses deformable superquadrics as modeling primitive. From the superquadrics model, in the case of human body, a parametric surface model is derived which is used in mannequin modeling. The performance of the system is evaluated in terms of user interaction, time taken, and accuracy.
