Abstract: The purpose of this work is to develop a system to model variations of prognostic body shapes by individual 3D scan data and to provide the modelling results to the users via the internet. The client interface allows the users to browse the processed data in a 3D GUI, to simulate body shapes with new desired body measurements (such as weight, waist, chest circumferences, etc.), and to generate printed reports. Modelling can be controlled by a few body dimensions, or even by one measurement. Statistical ground of the modelling control method is given.

Keywords: human body models; body shape modelling; simulation; 3D web interfaces; 3D scan data; body measurements; internet; digital human models; digital human modelling; DHM.
