Yesterday, researchers confirmed that bones found under a Leicester, UK.,
parking lot were those of King Richard III, killed in 1485. Today, the facial
reconstruction was revealed, to show the world the appearance of the missing
Royal.

Geomagic Freeform, in the skillful hands of Professor Caroline Wilkinson,
Professor of Craniofacial Identification at the University of Dundee, was used
to digitally recreate the face of the king. CT scan data of the skull was
placed into Geomagic Freeform for the reconstruction process in 3D.
