Abstract

See full text

The present invention provides a system for accurate three-dimensional (3D) capture of apparel by 3D scanning and stereo photogrammetry. One or more flexible deflated bladders are inserted into an apparel and inflated by a filling media source. The bladder is inflated to measure at least one of size of the apparel, tensile strength of the fabric of the apparel, or cross section perimeter of the apparel. A rotating structure is anchored onto the stable structure to uniformly rotate all the fixed points of the apparel. One or more 3D scanners are configured to scan the inflated apparel on the stable structure and export the scanned data to one or more software applications. The processor retrieves the 3D scanned dimensional data from a searchable database and compares the given apparel's dimensions with one or more apparels' dimensions in the database to provide the customer with size recommendation via a display.
