3D body scanning for the fashion process – Human Solutions at the Conference in Lugano


Human Solutions – together with its partner company VITRONIC – will participate in the 7th International 3D body scanning Conference in Lugano on 30th November and 1st December 2016. The conference is the world’s leading event for body scanning technology. This year Human Solutions has especially focused on the use of measurement technology in the apparel industry. 

3D body scanners by Human Solutions and Vitronic are used in a wide range of sectors, but particularly in the apparel and automotive industries. With the VITUSbodyscan, Vitronic also offers solutions for the fields of medicine and sports. At the companies’ joint exhibition booth, visitors can experience this product up close, have themselves measured in 3D in just a few seconds and receive an almost photorealistic image of themselves in color.

This year, Human Solutions will show how fashion designers can benefit from precisely-captured body dimensions. In three presentations at the conference, Human Solutions employees will demonstrate the opportunities body scanning opens up for apparel companies – Anton Preiss, Director Business Unit Mobility, will talk about the “Body scanner as an enabler for the digital fashion process. Anke Rissiek, Manager Sizing & Fitting, will present the initial results of the “iMorph” body shapes research project together with Thomas Fischer of the Institute of Textile and Fiber Research in Denkendorf. Anke Rissiek will also give a lecture on the topic of size & fit entitled, “From 3D scan to best fit products – a cloud-based solution for fashion and workwear.”

“We are convinced that body scanning opens up a broad range of possibilities in the fashion industry, from customized apparel production to sizing & fitting optimization for the masses and the integration of the customer into individual product development,” says Anton Preiss.

The international “3D body scanning Technologies” Conference and Exhibition in Lugano is a platform on which manufacturers, users, developers and researchers from around the world gather to discuss the latest developments in body scanning – and she will show visitors how the scanning systems and related software solutions have evolved continuously in the last 20 years.
