How to Create a 3D Model of a Human


A 3D model of a human is useful for a myriad of reasons: an art project, a study of the human anatomy or even a piece of decoration. The most important thing to keep in mind is dimension. It's easy to make a human look unrealistic if you don't get the dimensions right.

Things You'll Need

  • Clay
  • Measuring tape
  • Measure out the features of your body; for example, the size of your head in relation to your height or the length of your arm in relation to your height.

  • Use these measurements as the dimensions for your 3D human model.

  • Decide on a scale. If you want your model to be life-sized, keep your measurements as they are. If you want the model to be small, divide the measurements.

  • Mold the clay to your dimensions.

Tips & Warnings

  • Keep water near you to wet the clay if it starts to harden. Water also makes a good adhesive for wet clay.
  • After deciding on a scale, divide your dimensions by a constant number to make sure that the 3D model is proportionate.
