Abstract: This pilot research aims to identify and assess suitable technologies that may be used to capture, create, and produce fine textures and wrinkles that may be incorporated into computer aided prosthesis design and production techniques. A range of suitable technologies is identified and two methods that may be used in different prosthetic rehabilitation situations are assessed: the creation of three-dimensional relief in a computer aided design environment and the capture of facial anatomy and texture using fringe-projection surface scanning. Patterns were produced using the suitable rapid prototyping processes identified, and these were assessed by a qualified and experienced prosthetist. The suitability of the technologies is commented upon, limitations discussed, and future directions identified.
