Designing products that closely interact with the human body can be quite challenging. Think for example about wearables like helmets, (Virtual Reality-) goggles, masks, garments, sports braces, or shoes. We are all unique individuals and this requires designers to carefully consider the great variety of human body shapes and come up with smart ways of accommodating this variety in such products through the use of sizing systems, adjustable parts, or flexible materials.

We introduce ‘Mannequin’, a new tool for the DINED- platform. Through this tool, we want to make 3D anthropometry accessible for engineers, designers, and ergonomists by providing an intuitive interface for exploring 3D body shape variation and creating 3D design manikins. In the open data spirit of DINED, Mannequin can be freely used for both research and commercial purposes.
