Axis Studio allows users to input their own body size dimensions if the provided default body size presets do not apply.
NOTE: Prior to capturing, choose the body size preset that fits the actor‘s body dimension closest
before carrying out the posture calibration. Inertial motion capture accuracy is highly affected by the body segment length of the Avatar.
Options to update the avatar body sizing will be found under the Skeleton Tab
Here you will see that Axis Studio is using a default Skeleton for your project. The default Skeleton is called PNS ROBOT, which is using a height of 175cm's. Not all body shapes and sizes will match this skeleton, so we recommend to update the skeleton by using one of our preset skeletons.
When you first create a new project. Users can include preset body dimensions.
If selected, a list of preset body dimensions will be found under the sub menu Project>Body Dimension. See image below
Custom Body Size
So that the Axis Studio avatar matches your bone posture correctly we ask that you create a custom body size profile. This will help improve the posture accuracy during your real-time capture.

Following inputs are required:
- Measure From the Tip of the head to the ear lobe

- Measure from the Line of up lip and earlobe to C7
- Shoulder Width
- Left rotation center of shoulder to right rotation center of shoulder.
- C7 to head of femur.
- Upper Arm
- Rotation center of shoulders to rotation center of elbow.
- Rotation center of elbow to rotation center of wrist.
- Rotation center of wrist to the top of mid finger.
- Hip Width
- Left head of femur to right head of femur.
- Upper Leg
- Head of femur to rotation center of knee.
- Lower Leg
- Rotation center of knee to ankle bump bones.
- Heel Height
