When you want a dress/suit tailor-made for you, you will send in a 3D scan of yourself. Further down the road you will send in a 3D scan of yourself to get a car 3D printed just for you. To create an avatar, customers upload a body scan or enter a few body measurements into BodyHub, an online web application. BodyHub also gives users a range of additional functionality, including reposing, resizing or animating the avatar. For apparel design, this avatar can then be uploaded to computer-aided design software, where it can be dressed and animated, allowing designers to see how their clothing fits various body types.
