3D object reconstruction is frequent used in various fields such as product design, engineering, medical and artistic applications. Numerous reconstruction techniques and software were introduced and developed. However, the purpose of this paper is to fully integrate an adaptive artificial neural network (ANN) based method in reconstructing and representing 3D objects. This study explores the ability of neural networks in learning through experience when reconstructing an object by estimating

Simple affined transformation is applied on different objects using this approach and compared with the real objects. The results show that neural network is a promising approach for reconstruction and representation of 3D objects.
