3D BODY SCANNING

Body scanning is a non-contact, 3D measurement system that used safe infrared depth sensing and image technology to produce a digital copy of the surface geometry of the human body, generating a silhouette of the shape and extensive list of body measurements.

Compatible with CAD application, this 3D data can be exported for pattern construction, garment draping simulation and 3D body tracking. The 3D Body Scanner is portable and available for commercial use on and off site.

TEXTILE TESTING

We are the unseen technical partners in many of the fashion fabrics and high-performance clothing worn today.

Manchester Metropolitan’s Textile Labs have the technical expertise to take your product from the cutting room floor to the final show. We offer one-to-one advice on the different types of testing available, recommend the right testing for your fabric and advise on technical adjustments needed to add real value to your fabric and ultimately, the end product.
