Visual comparison of 2 models

Posted: January 06, 2012
Hi everyone,

I'm looking for examples of visualizations that let me compare two versions of a 3D shape. I should be able to easily tell (preferably without further interaction):

- Where do the two shapes differ?
- By how much?

The shapes are parts of human anatomy (a foot, a leg stump, a cranium). The users have little experience with 3D modeling tools.

Any ideas where I might find usable examples?

Many thanks in advance!

Hi DVV, oddly enough, I'm currently working on a tool for this problem, though it's for 3D printable objects in STL format, or OpenSCAD. I currently have a landing page up at cubehero com. I didn't dare put an address here, for fear of being flagged, since I'm a new user.

Is that something that's along the lines of what you're thinking about or looking for? Thanks.
