Abstract

The aim of this study is to reveal the inconsistency of virtual model formations manually created by individual technical designers and to identify effective ways of referencing human body dimensions to develop a prototype virtual model in the industry. In this experiment, the technical designers were asked to create two virtual models based on two types of size charts. The results of the experiment show that the problems of inconsistency were associated with the different perceptions by each technical designer on body dimensions and body proportions based on given charts. In addition, the problems were caused by automatic adjustments in the 3D virtual fitting software program. The limitation of adjustable size scales existed in pre-programed built-in features in the program. The result of this study will provide fundamental and referential materials to enhance and supplement virtual modeling technology.
