The panel presentation, titled “How is 3D Technology Disrupting the Fashion/Apparel/Footwear World?,” will explore a range of far reaching apparel development issues including the foundations needed to launch a successful 3D product visualization platform and how to import physical fabric properties into the latest PLM and CAD solutions.
In addition to Gribbin, executives from Browzwear, Pointcarre’, Volumental, Optitex and Dassault Systems will sit on the panel.
“We will examine some of the more perplexing aspects of 3D product development,” Gribbin notes. “For example, we’ll look at how companies that don’t have a pattern making department can use 3D and how to take 3D technology from prototyping to an integral part of scalable production.
“We’ll also identify some of the companies that are successfully integrating 3D technology into their existing processes and explain how they are doing this.”
Other panel topics include:
- Stakeholders or cross functional teams who would be either active or passive members of a 3D initiative.
- Challenges of utilizing 3D avatar technology to create product respective to target markets.
