Basic Components of the 3D Custom-Fit Technologies

3D Custom-fit “3D Custom-fit” is the term we created to refer to the technologies we are using during the mass-customization process. For your better understanding, we divide it into several parts: 3D Scanning and 3D Model Analysis Algorithms The 3D scanning module contains three parts, the laser gird projector, the

Mass-Customization V.S. Mass-Production

Mass-customization We want to build a new business model that uses 3D scanning and 3D printing as tools for mass-customization. Customers would use their smartphone to take a 3D scan and send their 3D body scan to our cloud server. Then they could order custom-fitted wearable products, such as sunglasses,

Why We Started Skelmet – Background

This journal post serves as the background explaining why we started this project. Individual Uniqueness First, we know the fact that everybody is unique. Here the uniqueness refers to the 3D body shapes. Although this is quite obvious to naked eyes, there’s also a science behind it, called Anthropometry, which
