Percentile Models

Percentile Models

Does anyone know of DWG (or DXF) drawings of any/all of the percentile male and female models?

Any assitance gratfully received.


RE: Percentile Models

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:

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,

RE: Percentile Models

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,

White Paper: Agile Product Engineering and Improved Product Outcomes
Today’s product development cycle is fraught with difficulties. Increased demands for complex functionality and reduced product development windows cause engineering teams to borrow practices from the IT industry, swapping outdated serial workflows for a more flexible and collaborative design method known as Agile Product Engineering.
