      Don,

      Thanks for the info. Some of what you show in your intro video is essentially what I am planning to do, I just need to get my hands on the base dimensions/shapes to build from.

I'd like to create a dummy in each of the standard shirt sizes for men and possibly many of the standard sizes for women, but I'm not confident abount the dimensions I have and how to turn them into a properly shaped oval to represent a human form.
