3D Body Scanning - Utilization of 3D Body Data for Garment and Footwear Design



Hohenstein Institut fuer Textile Innovationen, Germany


As results of different measurement campaigns with 3D Body scanners, additional to the body measurements, the 3D scan data includes very valuable possibilities of utilisation for garment development and footwear design. Since 1999 a large database of individual 3D body and leg scans of female and male persons aged from 6 to 80 years are available at the Hohenstein Institute. This 3D scan data was the fundamental basis for several research projects. The data was used to develop body measurement tables for garments and foot wear, to generate average virtual body models and to extract geometrical body information for optimisation of garment pattern construction.
