Abstract: With the rapid development of functional product design, the digital human body applied to design and manufacturing need be improved with more information of the human body. Functional and smart clothing has been a popular trend among consumers. The human model or mannequin may not fully satisfied the increasing demands of anatomical and physiologic messages from the human body in a visual and accurate way. As one of the most important functions of clothing, thermal comfort plays a vital role in many functional clothing design. In this pilot study, a thermal model was introduced to lay a foundation for functional thermal clothing development. A step by step method was commentated to draw a map for functional model development. This model was constructed by geometric human model from 3D scanning data and 2D thermograms from IR camera. The skin temperature data of subject was transferred to exact 3D human body, the temperature distribution and features can be clarified easily for design and manufacturing process. With the further requirements on application on computer aided design and manufacturing, the thermal model can be utilized in patternmaking, pattern revision, virtual fitting and grading for functional clothing. This pilot research is the launch of functional model design for industrial application. Limitation of the research will be solved in the future work.
