Abstract

A new 3D colour image reproduction system is proposed for automatic and accurate additive manufacturing of facial prostheses. The general framework of colour image reproduction was defined and a protocol for each sub-process was developed for this specific application. Prototypes of both nose and ear prostheses were produced using the proposed system. The produced facial prostheses are capable of providing accurate shape, fine texture and improved colour reproduction, with significant savings in both time and cost.
