The fast and easy generation of personalized mannequin is the premise for the accurate 3D measurement for the customers in an electronic made to measure (e_MTM) system. The purpose of this paper is to attempt to propose a new virtual human mannequin modeling technique to meet this requirement.
The customized human mannequin is constructed by assemblage of the body parts. The body parts including bust, waist and hip segments are achieved by modification of the standard body section templates, while the silhouette obtained from the front and side photos are used to confine the distortion of the parts.
The main findings are the section template base and assemblage method for mannequin modeling.
The proposed method can free the burden of high cost and inconvenience of 3D scanner in the measurement process of e_MTM system, and in the mean time without loss of measurement accuracy.
