Abstract: In this paper, we present a procedure for developing generic and parameterised models based on scanning data. Due to the problems in reverse engineering of bony structures, especially orbital ranges of cranium models, high personal expenditure is necessary to repair failure in automatic generated geometry models. Furthermore, the low resolution of Computer Tomography (CT) does not allow high definition models. Therefore a parameterised 3D model controlled through anthropometric data should produce better and faster results. First experiences and problems are presented in this contribution.
