I haven't done any ergonomics related work in a while, however I do recall having a government specification on the percentile human figures in my library of things.

As for acquiring dwg/dxf models/drawings of such, you can try one of the following web sites that deal specifically with 3D models but specialize in human figures:

www.viewpoint.com
www.zygote.com

I can't think of any others at the moment, although I know there are several web sites that offer good human figure detail. You will have to do some searching on these sites to find specifically what you are looking for, hopefully this can be of some assistance to you.

Best Regards,

With regard to my previous posting, I searched my library, and I would recommend MIL-HDBK-659A, on Human Factors Engineering, which is a very concise military handbook covering the spectrum of human factors engineering from percentile sizes to slump factors, and body movement. It contains several charts listing degrees/range of movement etc.

I've used it extensively on contracts with the military and it's been quite invaluable for close-quarters design work.

Best Regards,
