AI-Based Personalized Design and Fabrication

This technology focuses on the research of 3D human modelling, parametric design, prototyping and non-traditional materials fabrication. 

  • Dataset of Asian Body Shapes
  • Human Meshes with Actual Scale
  • Create a Universal Standard of 3D Human Dataset

70 Cameras

4 Projectors

8 Flashes

Non-Traditional Materials Fabrication

3D Human Body Scanner

By using a Full-Scale 3D Human Body Scanner that allows full body digitization of human subject with 0.2mm precision to support the formulation and analysis of a wide range of 3D human modelling schemes, we can apply our knitting instructions map or weaving map to produce personalized wearable fabrication with designated functions and/or advance mechanical properties.

Non-Traditional Materials Fabrication

With the ability to capture detailed body measurements and contours, the technology can be used to create custom-fit clothing that is tailored to the individual’s unique shape and size for produce a wide variety of clothing types.

Clothing produced using advanced 3D modelling schemes and knitting instructions
