Abstract

This study aims to enhance the usage of 3D body scan\ data by proposing a 3D body scan data editing process for clothing design and analyzing factors causing errors by editing processes. The 3D body scan data were collected by using the Body Line Scanner of Hamamatsu, and the configuration of scan data was analyzed by using the RapidForm 2006 program. For the 3D body scan, unmeasured parts necessarily occur, because of the principle of measurement. In addition, some errors are also caused by rotation angles, in developing symmetry for clothing design. Moreover, other errors can occur, in arranging surfaces and editing mesh, for enhancing the quality of 3D body figures. In order to minimize the factors causing such errors, this study suggests a novel 3D body scan editing process consisting of following steps: rotation of scan data, editing of unmeasured parts, arrangement of scan data surfaces, mesh editing of scan data and the horizontal flip of scan data. The findings of this study as basic research for standardizing 3D body scan data and enhancing the quality of scan data are expected to help increase the usage of 3D body scan data.
