Configuring the Body Model

Configuring the Body Model#

The body model can be configured in multiple ways. This include what limb segments are include, the type of muscles, scaling etc.

All these choises are controlled through a number of switches called Body Model (BM) parameters. BM parameters are always prefixed with BM_ and written in uppercase.

Simple example#

The example below configures a model with no arms and enables the 3-element Hill muscles model on the legs.


Some parameters have simple ON/OFF options, while others have more options.


// Now include the HumanModel
#include "<ANYBODY_PATH_BODY>\HumanModel.any"

The next section shows an overview of what BM statements are available for the different body parts.

BM parameters#


Most models can also be configured using the BM plugin.

There are body model parameters for configuring each body part, controlling scaling, controlling the default mannequin drivers (click to see tutorial on modelling from scratch), as well as other global options for the model.

See the following links for details on BM parameters related to different body parts and modelling options:
