In experimental mechanics especially in experimental biomechanics, evaluating a volume object is a major research axe. In mechanics, 3D reconstruction is made from different optical methods like stereovision  or structured light methods. In biomechanics, it is achieved from tomography techniques or from models which divide human body into 15, 16 and 17 polyarticulated solids . Those solids are simple volumes (cylinders, spheres). In this review, a method of 3D reconstruction from two calculated relief is proposed. Then, the geometric parameters are extracted using an algorithm and compared to the real dimension of various objects. The first test consist in studying the feasibility of the 3D reconstruction using a real upper arm and a mannequin. In a second test an analysis of a sphere and two cylinders which have different dimensions is performed. The aim of those last tests is to evaluate the performances of the proposed method, to show distortion volume problems and to propose solutions.
