3D Human Models

 

SLIMDESIGN created the 3D Human Models to validate designs in an early stage of the development process. We make the tool available for other developers through the 3D Human Model website. Beside Solid Works, we also have the other main Cad software available (.x_t/ .igs/ .step/ .stl/ .obj/ .dwg). Ahrend, Gazelle, Bugaboo and Dorel use the tool and sponsor our project.
