Body measurement techniques Comparing 3D body‐scanning and anthropometric methods for apparel applications

Body measurement techniques Comparing 3D body‐scanning and anthropometric methods for apparel... With the use of 3D body scanners, body measurement techniques can be non‐contact, instant, and accurate. However, how each scanner establishes landmarks and takes the measurements should be established so that standardization of the data capture can be realized. The purpose of this study was to compare body‐scanning measurement extraction methods and terminology with traditional anthropometric methods. A total of 21 measurements were chosen as being critical to the design of well‐fitting garments. Current body scanners were analyzed for availability of information, willingness of company cooperation, and relevance to applications in the apparel industry. On each of the 21 measurements, standard measurement procedure was identified for three different scanners: (TC) 2 , Cyberware, and SYMCAD. Of the 21 measures in the study, (TC) 2 was the scanner that had the most measures identified for the study and also had the capability of producing many more with specific application for apparel. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Fashion Marketing and Management Emerald Publishing

Abstract

With the use of 3D body scanners, body measurement techniques can be non‐contact, instant, and accurate. However, how each scanner establishes landmarks and takes the measurements should be established so that standardization of the data capture can be realized. The purpose of this study was to compare body‐scanning measurement extraction methods and terminology with traditional anthropometric methods. A total of 21 measurements were chosen as being critical to the design of well‐fitting garments. Current body scanners were analyzed for availability of information, willingness of company cooperation, and relevance to applications in the apparel industry. On each of the 21 measurements, standard measurement procedure was identified for three different scanners: (TC) 2 , Cyberware, and SYMCAD. Of the 21 measures in the study, (TC) 2 was the scanner that had the most measures identified for the study and also had the capability of producing many more with specific application for apparel.
