    The aim of this paper is to present a design methodology to obtain parametric geometrical model of 3D virtual mannequin representing the human bodies of a target population. The morphological evolution of these bodies depends on the chosen sizes imposed by the needs of the apparel industry. The population is composed of a representative sample of 5108 women aged 18-65 years from the French measurement campaign in 2003. These women have been measured by a 3D body scanner to detect with a good precision the measurements of the bodies. The proposed method starts by choosing a person representing the morphology nearest to the morphotype of the population. The morphotype is characterized by specific measurements from the standard size of the measurement chart. A geometrical model associated with reverse engineering techniques have been realized to generate the 3D virtual parametric mannequ.. Read More»
