Synopses & Reviews
The recent trend in user-customized product design requires the shape of products to be automatically adjusted according to the human body's shape, so that people will feel more comfortable when wearing these products.
This book introduces algorithms of human body reconstruction, freeform product modeling, constraining and reconstructing freeform products and shape optimization for improving the manufacturability of freeform products, to assist with automate design tasks.
