Hi,

i have two different human models and mow i want to scale the

AnyBodymodel to the size of the other one. My first problem occurs at

Pelvis Scaling. What is the Pelvis Width needed for? The joint nodes

were defined by coordinates and not calculated by Pelvis Width. So

what will i have to scale, the Width, the Coordinates or both? I think

for scaling the Coordinates i have to use the predefines Scaling

Functions, but all Coordinates reference to “Scale” while the

scalingfunction herself is named “ScaleFunction”. How should i

understand this?

Best regards, Maren

Hi Maren

The Pelvis width sets the distance between the hipjoints. You should in

general not change the sRel value of the HipJoints nodes. The scaling

assumes that the standard distance between the hipjoints are of a

certain size, so the model knows its standard hipwidth and use the

hipwidth provided by the user to scale the hipjoint nodes so that a

certain hipwidth is obtained. If the HipJoint nodes are moved and you

at the same time scales the model you will do two changes at the time.

It is correct that all coordiates in the model have a Scale function

applied to them. It normally just says “Scale”, but if you look in the

top of the segments you will find a reference to a scale function for

that particular segment.

Please ask again, if you have further questions.

Best regards

Hi Soeren,

i found the reference of “Scale”.

For the Hipjoint i changed “Width” under StandardParameters and

additional i defined a scaling factor, because the jointnodes of the

hip are defined with scaling. Is this correct? For your information,

it is the seating model from the repostiory.

Thank you, best regards, Maren.

Hi Maren

I am not sure i understand 100% the changes you made. I think it

would be best not to change the scaling in the BRep. Basically by

making changes in the BRep all model will be influenced.

By changing the “pelviswidth” value in your scaling file (something

similar to AnyMan.any) it should change automatically the pelvis

width, (making use the the standard pelviswidth) this should be

enough to control the pelvis width. The Gait3D model is a good

example on how the scaling works.

Please write again if you have further questions.

Best regards
