In September 1994 I concluded my postdoc at Stanford.
I am now an assistant research professor at UNC Chapel Hill.

I am working on zippering together range images to create polygonal models.
This research is being done as a part of the 3D Fax Project that is
headed by Professor Marc Levoy.
Our paper on the subject is Zippered Polygon Meshes from
Range Images (postscript, 0.95 Mbytes), published in the Siggraph
94 Proceedings. Below are some models built by this method.
Model created by combining 14 range images of a plastic dinosaur.
Here is a tiny movie of the above dinosaur

This lion was reconstructed from thirteen range scans of a plastic
model. This is work-in-progress by
and myself to incorporate color into models
reconstructed from range images. You may want to compare
