Garment bagging is considered as a 3D distortion happened over cyclic movement and/or prolonged stretching of fabric materials. In this study, a laser scanning system was proposed for a 3D measurement of garment bagging and the advantages of this technique over conventional methods were revealed. A surface inspection method for garment bagging was developed; simple boundary filter, pick peaks tool, 5 point FFT smoothing and polynomial fit were applied to detect and measure the borderline of bagging deformation conditions. The 3D information of bagging shape, including bagging height, could be obtained through this technique.
