Acquisition, management and visualization of 3D data

Latest News

On Friday 5 April we participated to a debate on Artificial Intelligence and Life Sciences organized by the Partito Democratico in Ivrea.

It was an opportunity to discuss the potential of AI and the possible impacts on the territory, but also to discuss the ethical implications deriving from the adoption of a technology of this magnitude. The study and implementation of digital technologies supporting mankind are research activities carried out at 3DLAB directed by prof. Enrico Vezzetti (Department of Management and Production Engineering of the Polytechnic of Turin) and we firmly believe that these moments of contamination of ideas through the intervention of developers, users and policy makers can increase awareness on such a current topic.

A heartfelt thanks to the organizers and speakers Alberto Avetta, Brando Benifei, Chiara Foglietta, Matteo Chiantore, Enrico Capirone and Francesco Giglio.

Next Event

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is writing a new chapter in the history of humanity, where the future is defined from the synergy between the human mind and the power of the algorithm, creating extraordinary opportunities. At 3DLAB you will be able to test how we integrate AI with Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality technologies to create effective and immersive solutions serving users.

The 3DLab Research Group

We focus on human-computer interaction applications and on visualisation, acquisition and management of 3D data.

Human body interaction, development of innovative product design methodologies, novel solutions for diagnostics and surgery planning and systems, emotional design, 3D sensors, augmented and virtual reality, 3D modelling and face analysis using machine learning techniques all belongs to our area of expertise.

We leverage on this knowledge to develop medical, security and safety, marketing software applications.

Research Activities

3D Face Analysis

Facial morphology study is currently a leading topic for several application fields.

3D Technologies and Tools for Surgery

Reseach and Development of innovative surgical guides and fixtures  solutions

Augmented Reality in Urology

The use of AR in surgery to improves the surgeon’s spatial perception of the surgical field.


Ensuring students are engaged, motivated and challenged throughout their school career is a key priority for teachers.


Innovation and new product development are essential for most companies to sustain future revenue growth.


The 3dLab group covers the demands on education in the following disciplinary and interdisciplinary areas:

Machine Functional Modelling

The subject has the main objective to provide the fundamental skills on tools for product development, that is all the technologies that designers use to design, innovate and industrialize.

Engineering Drawing

The basic language of all engineering activities is represented, in the majority of cases, by design processes that involve the engineer in two distinct activities: modeling and communication.
