This paper presents a novel experimental technique that combines three dimensional (3D) scanning and a quantitative assessment of the 3D geometric shape of foam cups to investigate the deformation behavior of foam during bra cup moulding and its relation to the moulding conditions. This study aims to provide an accurate, efficient and economical solution to measuring cup deformation with a plastic shot and providing a better understanding and more accurate modeling of the deformation behavior of foam to assure the quality and process of bra cup moulding.
