Influenced by Microgravity: The Development of Half-Scale Body Forms for Intravehicular Activity (IVA) Suit Design
Vurushan and Ashdown (2017) demonstrated how full body 3D scanning of active body poses can be used to develop “watertight” digital models and half-scale dress forms to facilitate design, pattern making and fit analyses. For this research project, Vurushan and Ashdown’s method was modified to develop dress forms, for a graduate student’s MS thesis project, focusing on Intravehicular Activity (IVA) apparel, using NASA’s “Man-Systems Integration Standards,” body position.
