Human Solutions to show potential of 3D
Digital is now! The Texprocess Americas will see Human Solutions present solutions to accelerate work processes in the apparel industry. The focus here is on the company’s know-how in sizing & fitting and in the use of digital humans in product development. One exhibition highlight will be an innovative Micro-factory project together with OnPoint Manufacturing.
At Texprocess Americas, Human Solutions shows the possibilities that digital working is offering for the apparel industry: At Human Solutions’ booth, trade fair visitors can put together an individual dress, after which the 3D simulation software Vidya is used to view the garment from all sides. Anyone who wants can take part in a prize draw with their design. Five clothes designed at the fair are produced daily by OnPoint Manufacturing and delivered comfortably to the winner’s home. “With this we show the seamless connection from the booth right to production. The customer himself becomes the designer for whom an individual garment is made,” says André Luebke, General Manager of Human Solutions of North America. “The possibility of connecting Vidya with a production facility creates completely new business models.”
This impressively demonstrates how far the technical possibilities for the fashion industry are now – and that 3D is the key to digital work that opens the door to many other options. With its Digital Fashionboard, Human Solutions has created a solution to use 3D through-out the entire fashion creation and sales process. At the Texprocess Americas, visitors will see how 3D in combination with PLM can open up new paths in the planning of collections and stores – but the Digital Fashionboard can also be used in the store as a virtual extension of the counter and as a tool for virtual fitting.
