3D body scanning for software

We offer stand-alone 3D-scanning service

Full body scan – what is typically included:
We take 3-4 scans during the appointment and select one to create the final 3D model. Scans capture geometry only. Color/texture is not captured.
The regular file output is .obj or .stl files, which are compatible with with most patter-making software packages.
(We use CLO3D in house for pattern-making and visualization).
Full body scan does not include details on hands, feet, head, face – only general outline is included.
Scan can be done with or without shoes.

Typical editing: general “smoothing” of undergarments lines; smoothing out of  “dips and bumps” that are formed by the undergarments; minor tummy adjustment (up to 1/2″ on distance map);

Mesh optimization: from our original resolution of 3-5 millions polygons we bring it down to about 200,000. It is sufficient quality for designing/visualizing garment, and it will helps to optimize the speed of the designing process.

Examples of additional options for 3d scan files preparation:

Symmetry analysis and adjustments;

Additional digital sculpting;
Example: – waist-area adjustment for corset making (more than 1/2″ on distance map)

Basic rigging (roughly 15-20 bones);

Additional poses captured with 3D scan during the same appointment;
(Once avatar is rigged you will be able to change the pose. However the changes in the shape around the joints will not be represented in a precise manner unless you do some very elaborate rigging. With additional scanned poses you can have more accurate representation of the body in different positions).

Additional scanned pose for croqui;

Quantitative analysis and visualization of the shaping (by taking several scans with and without shaping garments and then comparing the models).
