Abstract:

During the last decade, 3d scanning of human bodies got widely-used in apparel industry, but mostly just the measurements are taken and the pattern construction process is done still in 2D. Effective processes to bring a body scan anatomically correct into body postures and movements that are typical for garment usage, e.g. high-performance sports, are missing. Our approach uses a template model with an optimized mesh structure, a kinematic system composed of skin, muscles and skeleton parts, and anthropometric landmarks. The landmarks are used to scale each bone of the template model to the size of the scan and to adjust the posture exactly by rotating the bones. The muscle system and the skin follow the changes of the bones. This skin can now be used to generate automatically a mesh with the exact surface of the body scan and identical connectivity, which enables us to transfer the kinematic system and behavior easily and automated. We demonstrate results for a lower body part of a human being. All modeling and animation work was done in 3ds max.
