Singapore, February 21, 2019 – Browzwear, the leading provider of 3D solutions for fashion design, development and merchandising, announced today a new integration with BeProduct, the management solution behind some of fashion’s biggest technology install bases.

With this new integration, users will be able to access assets stored in BeProduct such as  fabrics, trims, and seam libraries, from Browzwear applications. With real-time sync, assets and tags will seamlessly update between the two platforms for an improved user experience.

“At BeProduct, we believe in putting control back in the hands of creatives who have been less served by traditional enterprise PLM systems, so integrating with the leading, open 3D platform made perfect sense for us and our users,” said Daniel Pak, BeProduct CEO. “We know that designers and product teams stand to benefit in a huge way from intuitive, powerful 3D tools, and an integrated approach to 3D and PLM is already unlocking real, measurable value for brands and retailers – from product design to marketing.”

The BeProduct and Browzwear integration makes it easier for designers to access and use the assets they need, and for brands to control which designers have access to which assets for their work, thereby closing the loop in an end-to-end workflow management process.

The new integration ensures that assets in BeProduct are automatically available in Browzwear. In addition, BeProduct includes full support for the U3M standard, with all material characteristics required for extremely technical 3D design, alteration, sample evaluation and other areas being accessible through an in-solution U3M app.

“As partners in the U3M alliance, we’re committed to delivering the most seamless 3D and PLM experience through open standards,” said Sharon Lim, Browzwear CEO. “Working closely with BeProduct enables transparent synchronization between material libraries and product data held in BeProduct, and every part of the Browzwear ecosystem.”

“We see Browzwear as being at the forefront of 3D adoption and innovation in apparel, and we’re proud to have established a partnership that brings the best of 3D and the best of design-oriented PLM into a single system,” said Pak.

(Singapore and Munich, Germany, October 10, 2018) — Browzwear, a pioneer of 3D solutions for apparel design, development and merchandising, together with Vizoo, developers of advanced material digitization technology, announce today the release of Unified 3D Material (U3M). This new open source format will help to standardize digital materials and serve as a bridge between software applications in the apparel industry.

The goal for u3m is to create real alignment of visual appearance between applications. “U3M leverages a physically-based rendering (PBR) shading model,” explains Martin Semsch, Managing Director at Vizoo. “Therefore applications supporting PBR achieve a very similar look.”

Until now, each vendor output digital materials in a proprietary format or embedded it directly in their styles. U3M will streamline this process, allowing digital asset suppliers to rely on one fabric format serving their customers, regardless of which 3D applications are used. Eventually, it will be more efficient to move fabric information between vendors and suppliers.

“We are pleased with the unique method we’ve created to easily store visual and custom physical data in one file,” said Sharon Lim, CEO at Browzwear. “U3M is the first digital material format in the industry to combine digital components together in a consistent manner, thus allowing industry standardization of digital material libraries.”

Vizoo’s upcoming release, xTex 181, will support reading and writing of the U3M format and 2019 will see the first integrations in 3D CAD and 3D rendering applications.

Browzwear, a pioneer of 3D solutions for apparel design, development and merchandising, today announced that Kristen Ohlsson has joined the company as the new General Manager for Browzwear North America. Before joining the Browzwear team, Kristen was a Senior Director of Technical Design for the Global Brands Group in New York.

She has also previously worked with Fishman & Tobin as a technical design manager and before that, as a pattern maker.

“Kristen has already proven to be a great addition to the Browzwear team,” said Sharon Lim, Browzwear CEO. “Her technical knowledge and experience working with patterns and moving up through leadership positions has prepared her for this role, and we look forward to learning from her and navigating the path ahead together.”

To kick off a creative and productive new year, we are pleased to announce the release of VStitcher 7.9 and Lotta 3.9, which does not require a C2V licensing update. We listened to your feedback and suggestions and have worked hard to incorporate them into this release, where we’ve added several new features and improvements. Check them out and let us know what you think.

Highlights

  • Realistic Edges for Accurate Fit: Improved accuracy of stitch and workmanship, with more realistic and responsive edges create a better overall effect on the garment look and simulation. This improvement perfects edge details in highly stretched garments like swimwear and underwear, and mimics complex edges of combined hems including elastics, for true-to-life overall garment behavior.
  • Interactive Design in Sizes: We’ve made it faster and more intuitive to work with predefined sizes. You can now define a group of sizes to work on interactively, and then save and share it with your team.
  • 3D Styling:  You can easily make adjustments like pinching pants from multiple points, rotating sleeves, or flattening ruched fabric, or use the persistent pinch tool to lock areas during simulation.
  • Bring Layered Garments to Life: We’ve made multi-layering easier by enabling  you to individually style each layer, hide or reorder layers, control gravity, temporarily disable stitches, and more for the most attractive display.
  • Improved UI and UX including:
    • Clone by offset for internal elements which makes it easier to clone and position buttons, trims, embellishments or any other internal element or line.
    • Relax and stretch option to set edge shrinkage in terms of the relaxed and stretched target values or percentages.
    • Advanced snap capabilities so patterns snap during rotation and snap to intersections of internal elements.

Introducing VStitcher 7.8
The Browzwear team has been working hard to improve your user experience and we’re pleased to announce the release of VStitcher 7.8 and Lotta 3.8. We added several new features and improvements that we know you will enjoy.

Some of the most exciting new additions include:

Multi-Layered Materials

For all-over prints, melanges and complex stitches

With this release, VStitcher introduces the very first 3D solution for complex multi-layer materials. Simply define a group of fabric or seam layers and from then on, you can manipulate the group just like a single material or edit each layer separately. You can create complex textures that are even more true-to-life, like a melange fabric or the inseam on a pair of jeans. With multi-layer materials, designing in 3D is faster and more flexible than ever before.
Layered material drag and drop layers

3D Folded Garment View (Labs)

Vstitcher and Lotta now include a flexible template for displaying your designed garment, folded. The Labs template includes a folded, button-down shirt with several display options including collars, buttons and more.

Folded shirt options

Simulation Improvements

The latest versions of VStitcher and Lotta feature simulation improvements to performance, pleats and folds, and complex, layered garments.

Expanded API for Costing

The Open Platform API now integrates with costing engines and proprietary costing calculators. After the integration is enabled, you can display the price of a garment in real time, as it’s being developed.

Export Measurement Charts

Quickly export points of measurement CSV charts for manufacturing and production for all garment sizes.

Smart Guides

Our new alignment guides help you align shapes in relation to each other in real time transformation.

Dynamic pivot points for pattern pieces and shapes

Move the pivot point on shapes and pattern pieces for more control over rotation, positioning and resizing.

 

Rotation by pivot point

UI Improvements

We have made a bunch of improvements to the interface including fabric physics search, print keyboard shortcut, 3D view camera rotation and editing and sharing camera parameters.

More Fluent CAD Changes

Changes include converting internal lines to edges, making slices to symmetrical pieces, “folding” of pattern pieces and glueing internal lines to edges.

Improved DXF Import

We’ve made it easier to read even more varieties of CAD files in DXF, AAMA and ASTM formats, including grading information and more.
