The Compliance of 3D Scanned Anthropometric Data with a CAD Grafis Measurement Chart

Ausma Vilumsone, Inga Dabolina


The designing of clothes includes a row of processes and one of the most time and labor consuming is constructing. The construction displays the layout (pattern) of the surface of the body (garment). In order to exclude routine job from the pattern making process CAD Systems are used. To gain a good construction, exact, proper and accurate human body measurements are needed. Measurements acquired by 3D scanning device should be checked out for compliance with CAD systems for automatized pattern making procedure.
