3D PLM: A Powerful Tool to Boost Your End-to-End Digital Workflow
232Are you leveraging your digital assets to their full potential to automate and streamline information? Do you find yourself re-entering data for e-commerce channels and other digital catalogs? Is waiting for physical samples to arrive slowing down your timeline?
Fashion, apparel and consumer goods companies are turning to 3D for the impressive array of strategic and operational benefits it brings. It is a technology that gives the industry a significant leap ahead by shortening product development times and increasing sustainability and productivity.
“In transitioning away from the physical workflow to a fully digital collaborative ecosystem, companies can cut costs, shorten timelines and become more sustainable,” says Ron Watson, VP Product Development at Centric Software®. “By integrating 3D digital assets that are upgraded in real-time, users push data changes downstream, saving considerable time and effort on manual data entry.”
Photo-realistic renderings of products can be shared with colleagues and suppliers remotely, boosting efficiency by eliminating the expensive and time-consuming back-and-forth of early physical samples and replacing them with accurate 3D representations.
Taking a closer look: having a 3D viewer allows users to see the texture, drape and physics of materials. It enables users to apply different colors, prints and to take snapshots. A collaborative team can then mark up these images with comments. The nature of the 3D viewer allows everyone to interact with 3D objects at all stages of the supply chain without placing extra demands on design and product development.
Further, being able to integrate with leading 3D solutions, like Browzwear, CLO, EFI Optitex, Vizoo and Emersya, ensures the 3D workflow is seamless—from product design and simulation to entire collection reviews to ecommerce sites—encompassing 3D information from multiple sources.
Says Watson, “Centric PLMTMprovides a central library of 3D assets allowing product designers and developers to take full advantage of end-to-end Centric 8 PLM and using 3D information for ideation, design and fit reviews, tech pack development, requests for quotation and co-creation with suppliers for true, end-to-end digital transformation.”
