Power to view, interact with and present true-to-life 3D designs across applications opens new opportunities for sustainable, efficient fashion business operations
NEW YORK, JANUARY 23, 2020
Browzwear, a global leader in 3D technology for the apparel industry, today announced the collaboration with Sketchfab, a leading online platform for displaying and sharing 3D content over the internet. The two companies are working together to bring new 3D experiences to the online fashion and apparel market, facilitating the export of true-to-life 3D garments from Browzwear’s VStitcher to Sketchfab’s high-performance embedded HTML 3D viewer. The new capability opens a variety of opportunities for apparel companies to showcase 3D garments across the web.
The new capabilities, available in Browzwear’s January product update, are enabled by the addition of GL Transmission Format (glTF) compatibility, which facilitates the import and export of 3D files to different applications without loss of quality. Now, glTF files created with Browzwear can be delivered seamlessly and rendered perfectly in Sketchfab’s embedded viewer without requiring additional adjustments.
“In giving the apparel industry the most realistic, accurate 3D models, we’re enabling a future in which businesses produce fewer physical samples, yet sell more items,” said Uri Tzadikevitch, VP of Product at Browzwear. “Every tool we create in partnership with innovators like Sketchfab adds to our customers’ ability to increase creativity with efficiency, reduce waste and grow revenue. Combined, this leads to more sustainable businesses, both economically and ecologically.”
“Sketchfab has become the de facto standard for publishing and sharing 3D content among a broad swath of the creative community. Partnering with Browzwear enables us to extend our reach into the apparel market as well,” said Alban Denoyel, co-founder & CEO of Sketchfab. “We look forward to replicating the success we’ve had with independent designers and small and medium business in the enterprise market.”
Browzwear will be showcasing the latest updates to their 3D design solutions in a Webinar on Thursday, January 30th. To attend, please visit: http://bit.ly/2EstEbT
