We introduce a procedure for automatic 3D modelling and discusses its performance in the context of a medical application, namely the 3D modelling of palate's casts. The general interest of the proposed method lays in the fact that a widespread use of 3D modelling in nonengineering applications requires automatic procedures. The specific interest is in the intriguing mixture of open issues concerning 3D modelling, geometrical metrology and medicine represented by the modelling of free-form surfaces of anatomical interest.
