Abstract: 3-D human body models are used in a wild spectrum of applications, such as film and entertainment industry, that require images of human replicas, but the computer generated models of human body generally do not adequately model the complex human morphology. These models do not reflect the realistic anthropometric data and are not specific enough for commercial use. This paper presents an approach to adjust virtual mannequins through the use of anthropometric measurement data, which are obtained from 2-D image-base measurement. In this approach, a novel method which used the Chinese medicine acupuncture theory for fast position locating and human body slice model to approach circumferences is proposed to 2-D image-based anthropometric measurement. The measurement data are used in grouping 3-D scanned body objects into clusters. The virtual mannequins are then adjusted by using the measurement data of the standard model that belong to its cluster. In this way, the realistic accurate virtual mannequins are created.
