Abstract

The process of capturing solid geometry as 3 dimensional data requires the use of laser based reverse engineering hardware, known as a digitizer. Many digitizers exist as articulated coordinate measuring machines augmented with a laser, which forces the operator into many postures that are not ergonomically sound, particularly in the operator's upper body. This study analyzes the traditional method of laser digitizing using modern methods and technologies. An alternative user interface using a head-mounted monocular display is hypothesized and evaluated.
