Measurements of the Thoracic Region

Measurements of the Thoracic Region

This blog illustrates the different chest measurements extracted from a 3D scan. At present, a full body scan is required for extracting these measurements.

Chest measurements are crucial for making patterns for suits, ladies garments, t-shirts, shirts and jackets, for men and women. They also play an important role in size and fit recommendations. The shape of the body can be determined by accurately measuring the torso. 

To enable the designer to make accurate cloth patterns, 3D Measure Up offers more than 50 measurements in the Thoracic region (from the Neck to the Hip) that are horizontal, aligned to the skeleton, contoured and measured by tape.
