View Full Version : Surface grid of human hand wanted

12-04-1997, 04:04 AM
Hi all,

Does someone out there have access to a surface grid (a collection
of 3-D coordinates) that crudely or precisely resembles the surface of a
human hand - preferrably in ascii table or MATLAB binary format - ?
I am also interested in any software or computer-readable model that
can be used for constructing such a grid.

I will need this for illustrating some practical aspects of specific
kinematic results. Surely such a hand grid must exist somewhere, and I was
hoping to avoid reinventing the wheel by borrowing from others rather than
constructing the whole thing myself.

By the way, no such data is available through the ISB web page
(http://www.kin.ucalgary.ca/isb/data/) as far as I can see.

Thanks for the attention.
