German term or phrase:Höhenmodell...visualisiert
Eine eigens entwickelte Software erstellt ein Höhenmodell der vermessenen Bereiche und visualisiert dieses nach Rekonstruktion der unbekannten Ausgangsform der Proben.
This appears in a summary of a medical study on the tribological assessment of metal-on-metal hip prostheses. It is in a section that talks about how measurements were taken to assess abrasion levels.
The 'Proben' are metal ball and cup prostheses, which are being examined for signs of wear some time after the patients had their hips replaced. 3D coordinate measurement is used (the ball and cup are measured in thousands of different places) before the computer uses these measurements for its reconstruction. Does this help?

Explanation: I suppose when they talk about Höhenmodell, they mean a 3-D model. Visualising something means displaying it, at least in software terms.

Explanation: Can you please give more background? I am stumped at this:
How can a computer (ROBODOC) or a person RE-construct unknown original forms (unbekannte Ausgangsformen). How would you ever KNOW whether it is a reconstruction?
