The fashion industry is looking with interest at the progress in 3D human body modelling, to streamline and optimize the production of customized, on-demand clothes. The accuracy required for length measurements of a 3D body model is in the order of magnitude of a few millimetres. The paper presents the first results of a study for the development of a body scanning system for the apparel and the fashion industry based on photogrammetric techniques. With the objective to anticipate at least some of the practical aspects of the study, an investigation into the accuracy and completeness of the body model reconstruction as a function of camera network configuration, type of image matching algorithm and camera orientation has been performed.
