CadModelling: Tradition, research and innovation.

Theory of Body Shape

Developed by Silvio Quattrocolo, the theory set out key body shapes, 6 for men and 9 for women, which have been expanded and updated over time and we now base our fit mannequins on.

Our Mission

We help companies improve their performance by offering high-tech products and services, streamlining work for designers and those in the ergonomics sector.

Formax® Fit Mannequins

Formax® anthropometric fit mannequins are all customisable and guarantee the highest standards of fit, comfort and safety, reducing time-to-market and production costs.

Realistic human anatomy

We were the first company in the industry to discard the concept of sizes in favour of body shape and morphological families based on realistic human anatomy.

In step with new needs

We’re committed to finding solutions that live up to current industry demands through ongoing discussions with clients and training institutes.

3D Editing

We use the latest 3D technology and international sizing databases to create anthropometric Formax® fit mannequins in the most accurate way possible.
