Whole body 3D scanning is an important tool for collecting measurement data for the custom fit apparel markets. The ability to take measurements en mass for a specific group such as the uniforms for hotels and military is quickly being adopted. Once those measurements are captured for the group, the data can be used for size prediction of standard sizes or for custom fit orders.
The challenge for custom fit centers on the product types being offered. Defining the product with target market, technical design, measurements and parametric modeling in mind will greatly increase the success of servicing the custom fit business.
Stacy Holt, an Apparel Engineer with over 25 years' experience in apparel manufacturing and product development will explore how these challenges are overcome with the use of the latest apparel CAD technologies. Optitex's PDS, Virtual Prototyping and Modulate software will be used to demonstrate the process. Beyond Clothing Ltd, a manufacturer of extreme sports and mission apparel will assist with live subjects and styles.
