Scan-to-Pattern Clothing Systems: A Systematic Approach



Anthrotech Inc., Yellow Springs OH, USA


Sizing systems for commercial off-the-rack clothing have historically been based on a mix of tradition, trade secrets and anthropometric data. More recently, large quantities of information from 3D body scanners have become available, creating a new source of data from which off-the-rack clothing can be sized and designed. [We note that some scanning systems are used for made-to-measure or custom garments, and those processes are not the subject of this paper. This paper will also not deal with the direct use of the 3-D image to create patterns without the extraction of dimensions.] With these new, large, datasets available it is worthwhile to review the whole process of how to go from a scanner-produced anthropometric dataset to finished patterns.
