In a three-dimensional (3D) foot scanning, a 3D point cloud is generated and meshed to create a 3D foot model with depth information. In the previous analog process of foot scanning is to draw an outline of the foot and imitate the foot directly. This method has some disadvantage that has a measurement error, difficult to recreate, inaccuracy of reference point and an error by an expert abilities. In this paper, in-plane deformation measurement method is proposed to solve this problem. In-plane deformation measurement method is a novel method to measure foot size from a 3D foot scanning data. The Shrink-Wrap method is used to reconstruct a foot model, that estimate the foot model by wrapping the surface of a foot of the square template mesh model. For comparison, foot length, foot width and height of the instep is measured with the proposed method. In comparison with handcrafted method, the experimental results show that our proposed method has complexity reduction, higher precision and accurate reproducibility.
