Solidworks Human Figure Model?

07/31/2009 11:13 AM

Does anyone know where I can find a Solidworks solid model of a human figure? Nothing fancy; just need it to add a sense of scale to a drawing of a machine.

Why yes Indeed... Many are available on the interwebs... type "CAD model human" into google...

http://www.3dcadbrowser.com/preview.aspx?ModelCode=14145

http://artist-3d.com/free_3d_models/02anatomy_design.php

Those are just two examples i grabbed right quick. You will need to import/Convert them, as no one in their right mind would attempt to accurately model a human figure in SW.. Most are made in 3Dstudio, or similar program. Or for a Fee, I'll download them, convert them to SW file, Color them, put a smile on their face, a bow in their hair, and a nifty 80's Designer jacket to boot.

I just thought I would make a contribution, as I found this forum very helpful. I found this very good model, http://www.bmhinnovations.com/50th-Percentile-Anthropometric-Man.php Worked great for my massing, and presentation purposes.

Look in 3D Content Central for Homer Simpson.

Google "make human" It is a software program that will enable you to build your own customizable human model. You can make male and female models, put clothes on them (or not), modify their attributes at will, and even make aliens etc. Fun to play with.

You could try this free trial plug-in that includes male and female poseable figures, is very easy to use and very precise. It is anthropometrically correct and scaleable from 5th to 95th percentile:

I've been providing human models to the SolidWorks community since 1998. These models called HumanWorks have been created after 10 years experience and are well thought-out. They have correct sizing and movement based on puclished studies of Human Percentiles. If this does not matter to you, then use Poser. Otherwise you need these models:

Hi!

I could really recommend this website: www.3dhumanmodel.com.

The website provides the biggest collection available on the web of fully poseable human models that are based on real anthropometric data. You can choose from a large number of different ethnicities, age groups and gender so you can use the models not only to demonstrate your designs, but also to validate the design itself.

I hope it helps!
