Body Scans Visualized

The Polyworks software application can display body scan data as points, a triangulated wireframe, a wireframe with surface rendering, or simply as a smooth surface. Additionally, slices can be taken at any orientation, enabling us to measure circumferences and view cross sections in different areas of the body. Even for bodies with similar circumference measures, variation in shape can factor into garment fit. The 3D scanner enables us to examine the body in ways never before possible, including the shape of a cross section, slice area, surface area, and volume.
