Over discussion on the Digitalization Panel 3D design points the way, but the next steps into ready-to-wear and, most importantly, a comparison of the finished 3D garment with the original 3D model is still missing.
At Veit, together with startup partner Thullex, one developed an automatic 3D scanning process for finished pants during the ironing/finishing process. This eliminates the need for 2-dimensional checks on the measuring table. The Veit Vice President, Christopher Veit said, “The data can be transmitted in real-time to the producer or even the brand owner in a target/actual comparison. Two steps become one, and the potential human error in both measurement and data entry is eliminated. Currently, we are still looking for future-oriented brands that would like to collaborate on this project to explore the potential and contribute their needs, ideas, and experiences in an open innovation process.”
