Chinese head shape differs from Western head shape (see video below). To design products that fits the Chinese population, it is critical that you use measurements and 3D models based on Chinese head shapes. SizeChina offers 3D scans, anthropometric landmark data and physical models for Chinese head shapes through Certiform.org.

Faceforms íV Set of 6 Digital 3D anthropometric models
Six digital models for the Chinese male and female populations, at 5%, 50% and 95% percentiles, 3 models per gender. Meticulously developed from the comprehensive SizeChina database, each Faceform is a high resolution 3D anthropometric model.
These highly accurate models are ideal for use in product design, engineering, apparel development or any application where highly accurate facial shape data is required. An indispensable for product for organizations looking to serve the booming domestic China market with products that are have increased comfort and safety for the end user.
The digital files are available in standard IGES (surface) and STL (mesh) formats for use in popular product design software applications.

All 3D scan files are preprocessed from the original scan for maximum compatibility with CAD systems and are available in IGES and VRML formats. All scans have been checked for quality and aligned (via the Frankfurt plane) to a common x, y, z axis. Each individual CertiformTM scan has undergone substantial post-scan processing to render a high quality, data-rich digital file.
