With the advancement of physics, we will eliminate another obstacle to measure the 3D process and facilitate the digital digitization of textile suppliers.

Digital Product Development (DPC) has been a key challenge for companies in the fashion sector for decades. Over the past few years, 3D fashion has evolved from an advanced app to a global adoption.

3D CAD solutions provide the right tools for creating designs and costumes. When it comes to accuracy and perfection, digital materials are key to achieving this goal. Visual Material Standards for DPC Digital-to-Life Materials is well established – Visa is a leading provider of this type of technology in the fashion industry.

However, real 3D fabric includes not only visual properties but also physical curtain dimensions. Today, the latter measure is one of the biggest bottlenecks. Most 3D CAD providers offer proprietary testing tools and techniques. However, none of this information is currently available. In small quantities this does not really cause a problem, but looking at the larger image brings a dilemma: a balanced process requires digitizing 3D materials on the fabric supplier. Unfortunately, this requires suppliers to measure the physical properties of the fabric several times, once for each 3D CAD software they use. Considering that a single measurement takes about 60 minutes, the process takes a lot of time and effort.

“When we looked at the problem at hand, we quickly realized that just putting another measuring device on the market would not solve the problem,” said Martin Semish, CEO and co-founder of Viso. The fact that there is no central point of interpretation from every measurement tool to 3D CAD equipment comes to mind. Physics solves this.

physX is a cloud-based platform, with a growing number of dimensions for 3D simulation. Whichever 3D software the user is working on, physX provides the curtain information needed for the fabric. The information is currently available for browser applications and CLO3D, but will soon support other devices as well. With a user-friendly interface, people can easily search and filter fabrics using properties such as construction, composition and weight. In addition, even the preview of the recorded simulated result allows for a measurement selection that can be identified.

The user experience is so important to Visa that the platform is available directly from Vizoo xTex software. This process is based on good condition U3M 1.1 Format (file format contains visual and physical parameters) makes it possible to create material in an application.

Rebekka Hasenauer, owner of Visco Physics, says: “For a 3D fashion designer, creating assets is a tedious and time consuming task, and often breaks down the creative process. Access to FXX allows the designer to design any garment without having to wait for the fabric to be digitized.

“In the development of physics, we will remove another obstacle to measure the 3D process and facilitate the digital processing of textile suppliers,” says Visco’s CCO Renate Eder. “We are working to support additional 3D CAD applications to provide greater compatibility. In addition, by 2022 API will be able to access the database from third-party software and platforms.

Beginning in November 2021, the physX platform will be available with an annual subscription to the xTex product family as an additional or independent web-based application.

About Vizoo

Visa Material swatches are the number one solution for digitizing physical accuracy. Since 2013, automotive, clothing, footwear, home fashion brands and their suppliers have relied on the Visa xTex system to digitalize their material process and create digital pairs of material samples. So far, the company has developed an extensive network of more than 300 customers and is expanding its systems to more than 40 countries worldwide.
