In this paper, we visualize and quantify the differences between two 3D surfaces. A human participant was scanned in standing and cycling poses. We rigged the standing scan and re-posed them to a cycling pose. The two surfaces (rigged and ground truth) were then inspected for the differences in the various segments of the body. The objective of this paper is to demonstrate the potential of using a simple method (Linear Blend Skinning) to re-pose a scan from one configuration to a pose of choice. This forms the first step of an innovative and accurate method to visualize human beings in any pose desired by a designer, engineer, or sports analyst. Applications of this method could be in the fields of fashion, ergonomics, and professional athlete services such as ‘bike fitting’ and aerodynamic drag force analysis using computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
