Taking measurements contactless and digitize pattern from photos

Taking body measurements contactless
Inspire your made-to-measure customers with the modern and comfortable way of taking measurements without tape measure. You save the cost and space requirements of a body scanner.

Digitize wherever you are
Determine your customers' body measurements from photos in just a few steps or digitize paper pattern and sample pieces with ProfileFitPattern 2.1 and GRAFIS CAD.

Taking body measurements with PFP

With ProfileFitPattern 2.1 you are able to determine the body measurements of your specific customers with two digital photos. This opens completely new possibilities in the market of individualised clothing as you do not have to summon the customer for measuring or rely on measurements taken by the customer. ProfileFitPattern 2.1 thus allows you to professionally determine customers‘ body measurements, world-wide, without the need for complex arrangements.

In future, simply take photographs of your customer in front and side view to obtain all body measurements required for pattern development. These photos can be generated by the customer, for example for made-to-measure orders from an online shop. This enables contactless measuring and allows you to measure customers all over the world.

The photos are rectified, aligned and cropped with PFP Photo. The contours of the front and side can be captured and imported into GRAFIS CAD together with the photos.

Through the photos, you will already be familiar with the posture and the figure-specific characteristics of your customer. This knowledge can be instantly incorporated into the style development. Through incorporation of the images into the style file, you have your customer in front of you at all times.

The images and contours serve in GRAFIS CAD as a template for a profile construction, with which the silhouettes of front and side view are interactively traced.

Depending on your routine, you will have determined the customer measurements in a few minutes using the semi-automatic function.

GRAFIS determines the length, width and circumference body measurements from this profile. These can be used as a measurement chart for style development, enabling you to realise existing styles directly for individual customers.

Your advantages

  • Cost and space requirements for a 3D body scanner are omitted
  • Photos can be generated by trained staff or directly by the customer
  • Contactless professional measuring
  • During style development you can take into account the posture and figure-specific characteristics of your customer

Digitize with PFP Photo

Transferring pattern pieces into a CAD system via a digitizer is tedious and frustrating. The result can only be evaluated after the digitizing process is finished which often leads to inaccuracies or untidy curve runs. The purchase of a digitizer tablet is expensive and requires a significant amount of space. Our ProfileFitPattern 2.1 provides the solution!

ProfileFitPattern 2.1 enables digitizing of paper patterns or sample pieces without a digitizer tablet. The pattern pieces are photographed with a digital camera, edited and then equipped with grade rules or traced interactively in GRAFIS CAD.

The digitized outcome matches the accuracy of measurements of a result digitized with a digitizer tablet. As the digitized curves can be compared directly on-screen with the original, the curve accuracy is significantly greater.

Grade rules for grading can be assigned to patterns available in the sample size only. If the graded nest is available, digitize the basic contour and the grade rules at the grade points directly. In both cases, the result is a gradeable grade rule pattern. A photo processed with PFP Photo can also simply be used as a photo template for adjusting interactive constructions.

Your advantages

  • No expensive digitizer table required
  • Space requirement for digitizer tablet omitted
  • Flexible and location-independent digitizing

Grading digitized pattern

The imported pattern pieces can either be traced interactively or equipped with grade rules. Decide for yourself whether grading should be based on body measurements or grade rules.
