Much work remains before 3D anthropometric imaging systems can be used successfully in automated apparel design and other applications requiring accurate human body size data. Furthermore, the development of basic anthropometric data extraction tools and other related application software must be greatly enhanced, regardless of the scanner type or proposed application. Still, based on current progress, the potential of 3D anthropometric imaging seems tremendous. Certainly, the costs and benefits will become more apparent with time. Probably, a given method might suit some applications and not others, according to variables such as data acquisition and processing speed, system resolution, data accuracy and color. Technical differences aside, as long as a given system can consistently generate surface data to a known level of precision-a level acceptable for the application at hand-the system should find broad acceptance. Finally, only careful testing and validation of new applications can ensure the long-term usefulness of any data collection system, 3D or otherwise
