    A series of new reports has been published on 20 December 2013 by Safe Work Australia.

    These reports focus on the evidence and method for developing and conducting a Body Sizing Survey that for the first time which includes Fit Mapping as part of the data collection. Fit mapping is the relationship between anthropometry and fit metrics.  Fit metrics is the measurement of fit (apparel/PPE and environment).

    This is needed because there is currently no underlying principles that translate body measurements into products that fit.

    This is intended as a template for any country to develop and use.

    Anthropometric surveys undertaken in other countries have helped improve work health and safety, increase productivity and reduce inefficiency. But this is the first one to focus on principles of fit.

    This report builds on the 2009 Australian Safety and Compensation Council report “Sizing Up Australia: How contemporary is the anthropometric data Australian designers use?’ which found Australia needs a body sizing survey.

    For the reports see:

    There are a few websites the publish aircraft seat dimensions but that isn't enough to really capture the discomfort for my body type.  The shape of the seat pan and back are factors, the cushioning, the angle of the back etc.  What do you think about publishing individual reviews of different aircraft & flights like we do for items we buy on the internet?  When I see a review of a garment I am considering purchasing I like to know if the reviewer is like me or not so I love it when they describe themselves.  Some companies have a checklist where the reviewer identifies age, size, and personal preferences.  We could create an website with links to flights and even seats on flights with reviews like that.  Maybe we could make it profitable to improve the seats that way.  Thoughts?

    We have found an interesting site to do with 3D printing which we posted about on the 3rd of September 2013. 

    Has anyone seen this before? Is it a good tool? 

    We would love some feedback!

    Hi everyone, 

    We'd like to share some good quality teaching resources about engineering anthropomerty (anthropomerty for design purposes), so please if you could post some links to your resources here, that would be really helpful. 

    This is a good example:

    We are planning to purchase some 3-D printers. They are getting awfully cheap now. Does anyone have any tips for purchasing a 3-D printer? Or any experience with specific 3-D printers? We would love it if you could comment below and give us some tips if you have any!
