Browzwear: Collaborating with true to life 3D virtual representation.
The textile industry is a late bloomer with respect to adopting new technologies. PLM and 3D design tools are no exception. However, the synergy between data management and design delivers a wide range of benefits, saving time and costs, but also contributing to increasing sales by leveraging the 3D design outputs as a vehicle to sell to businesses and consumers over the web.
Cutting out the tedious and costly process of fitting, experimenting and redrawing patterns, VStitcher™ digitizes the entire process giving designers and pattern makers true-to-life customizable models, turning 2D patterns into realistically draped 3D garments.
Want to make a change to your 2D pattern? It's instantly transformed into a 3D garment and your life-like model is showing you how it looks.
Want to consult on a design? Your virtual model displays the garment real-time to any remote customer or partner.
Need to meet deadlines for presenting next season's collection? An attractive animated catalogue is instantly dispatched to your distributors while the garments are still in the making.
3D and PLM
Today, it is clearer than ever that a stronger integration between a PLM solution and 3D design tool will benefit users:
• Shortening the product design and development cycle
• Enhanced control over the supply chain and product development
• Sharing a secure and reliable 3D CAD model for the purpose of creation and evaluation of product ranges amongst all collaborative partners.
• 3D visualization of raw data
