3D Technology and Its impact on the Apparel Industry

Ed Gribbin
Ed Gribbin, president of global apparel business expert, Alvanon, will be joining a premier panel of consultants, retail executives and technology providers to advise visitors to Product Innovation Apparel 2015 with insights on 3D technology and its impact on the apparel industry. The event will take place at The Union League Club, 38 East 37th Street New York City, Room 1, June 23, 4:20 p.m.

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.
Alvanon is the global apparel business expert. Alvanon consultants will be on hand at Booth # 9 to answer visitors’ questions on any element of the apparel development process, from conceptual design and production through to merchandising and point of sale.
