A history of technology, design and made in Italy

Cad Modelling is a typical example of a succesfull and talented small Italian enterprise.

Founded in 1968 with the purpose of teaching and studying pattern making and quality control for the “ready to wear” manufacturers.

From its great experience in the apparel industry combined with a accurate study of the human body they were able to create a whole range of mannequins representing international averages. A very unique idea, basically the exact evolution of the tailor torso or dress form.

They were all developed after many years of collecting data about population and the human body volume. This way, we were able to identify the most recurrent body shapes on the market in order to give and create the perfect tool for FIT SESSION and QUALITY CONTROL CHECK.


Cad Modelling assures innovation, best fit comfort and quality control throughout the world optimizing resources and production processes. The company mission is to support model-makers and ergonomic designers with high tech quality control and ergonomic tools. Cad Modelling is also able to provide in short time custom-made products that meet clients’ needs.
