Hello, I know that there are plans in the works for Seamly to become or have the capacity to use for actual 3D body scans and resulting measurements. But until that is fully developed, I am curious if anyone has been using any other solution in the interim for getting those exact measurements.
Currently, I hand measure clients and hand input measurements into Seamly (and I love using Seamly2D for making the patterns). But I would love the ability to automate the measuring and data entry. That way I wouldn’t have to meet directly with a client (and I could even even work with clients out of state or in another country).
I see a lot of 3D scanning solutions out there including iPhone Apps and iPad attachments. Open Source Raspberry Pi cameras. And within the fitness category I also see that there is a lot of promising ideas related to body shape tracking (almost like a replacement for a home scale). There’s even some solutions that use the Microsoft XBox Kinect for taking 3D renderings of the body.
Perhaps one of these solutions can be used to gain the measurements necessary for making custom fit patterns. Is anyone currently melding any of these solutions or services with Seamly?
