Welcome to the Human Dimensioning Lab (HDL) at the College of Design. The HDL fills a critical void in wearable product engineering through the development of technology and tools for dynamic 3D and 4D scanning, which encourages more robust, data-driven designs for products.

What is the Human Dimensioning Lab?

The HDL is a research lab that explores methods and technologies related to anthropometry through assessing human dimensions, form, posture, and the performance of wearable products.
