A New Ergonomics Manikin Generation Method from Real 3D Scanning Body
Computer-Aided Ergonomics (CAE) makes it possible that people may build a virtual environment for ergonomics evaluation in the product’s digital model phase. Manikin with anthropometry data supplies fundamental information in design lifecycle, so it also plays an important role in CAE software. Thanks to the 3D scanning technology, we developed a new ergonomics manikin generation method which could create free-form surface human model from real body. Generation method concluded body scanning, model optimization, and combining skeleton stages. Finally, case study proved that Paper’s method could generate more exact manikin than former parametric modeling methods, and it would benefit customized products design.
