3D body imaging and fit for functional textiles

B. Xu,     University of Texas at Austin, USA

Abstract:

This chapter is focused on how to apply 3D body scanning technology to improve the comfort of functional clothing, which often looks bulky, is ill-fitting and in a one-size-fits-all design. 3d body imaging technology offers solutions to many of the fitting problems for protective clothing. Stereovision techniques were used to construct a low-cost body imaging system, a mesh subdivision algorithm was adapted for generating smooth body surface based on scanned data clouds, and simulation techniques were implemented for creating realistic virtual clothing on a reconstructed model. The portability and high speed of the scanner allow large-scale ...
