Abstract

The present study developed a sizing analysis system for head-related product designs based on the Civilian American and European Surface Anthropometry Resource (CAESAR) database of North Americans. A total of 2299 heads in the CAESAR database were manually edited and 26 anthropometric landmarks were marked on the edited 3D heads to measure 30 anthropometric dimensions related to head-related product designs. The 3D anthropometric sizing analysis system (3D-ASAS) developed in the study provides analysis functions of a sizing system and representative face models by considering a target product, a target population, the number of size categories, and key anthropometric dimensions based on the CAESAR head measurements. Further research to reduce the efforts of manual editing and landmarking of 3D body scan data is discussed for efficient application of the 3D-ASAS to the design process of various wearable products.
