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.

在今天的 客座文章中Browzwear的首席商务官莉娜·林(Lena Lim)承接莎伦·林(Sharon Lim)的上月访谈 并探讨数字化时代的服装设计流程。莉娜是战略专家,擅长改变流程管理和业务重组以完成数字化转型。她拥有在亚洲、法国和美国时装界以及在一些科技企业20多年的团队管理经验。

数字化时代已然来临。各行各业都已经经历了,或者正在开始一场数字化转型,对于服装业而言,此时也应当与时俱进。事实上,服装业的几家主要企业正在进行一场数字化变革,而3D技术就是这场变革的核心。

迄今为止,服装设计工作流程中所面临的最大的挑战就是实物服装存在的必需性。各个品牌要么依赖于对参考服装进行修改后为自己所用,或者不得不从零开始设计一些样品。在实物样品制作完成之前,能够做出的实质性决策甚少,无法收集到有意义的反馈,也无法开展任何工作,而且有时候实物样品的完成需要数周乃至数月的时间。

3D 仿真技术应运而生

3D服装设计技术出现之后,设计师们几乎能够立即重新设计出一件服装样衣,设计团队也因此能够快速拍板决策并且显著缩短产品上市所需的时间。

在依赖3D技术进行服装设计时,其关键的一点是要确保取代实物服装样品的3D样品必须是逼真的。能够保证整个流程顺利完成的唯一办法就是拥有一件实物样品或者能够与所在环境精准呼应的逼真数字化服装,不论是悬挂时还是穿在身上时的效果都能得以精准反映,包括布料的质地和重量以及针脚、构造、辅料和配饰。

但是样品仅仅意味着开始。未来2至5年服装设计预测还包括各个品牌利用数字化工具方式的许多改变。我们已经可以看到前20%的时装品牌利用人工智能和深度学习 是如何把握时尚动向的,这些工具的此类特色和功能随着时间的推移只会越来越精细。各个品牌不仅能够实时看到其客户穿着的效果,理解色彩、剪裁和布料的流行趋势,在下一阶段中,他们还将能够预测流行趋势。顶尖品牌将能够把所有的此类数据引入其数字化工作流程中,以保证采购的合理性并且利用3D设计加快新款式和新系列的上市速度。

设计竞技场的差距将逐渐缩小

未来我们将看到,时装公司将不再依赖于追逐时装界大公司的足迹而谋求发展。事实上,设计领域的差距将缩小,每个品牌公司都将能够利用先进的3D工具从而成为潮流领导者。得益于3D数字化的便利,系列产品的生产周期不再需要两年,从始至终整个工作流程将被缩短至仅仅数天,以此确保每一款新的设计都与当下的流行趋势相贴合。

在数字化转型的下一阶段,我们将看到各个品牌收集趋势分析数据并且使之作用范围不仅限于打造新款式,还将用于推断品牌需要哪些材料以及何处采购。比如,假如趋势分析结果表明,一些颜色在某些地区以及某些人群中更加流行,那么服装公司就可以将这种特定的色板加入其3D设计系统中,而3D设计系统将根据这些数据提供配色。设计师们可以快速做出决定,查看哪些材料能够从哪些工厂采购到,并且在服装开始生产之前为网络店铺制作虚拟的3D服装。

最终,加速生产将成为一种标准。在网站和商品目录里显示的逼真3D数字化服装十分精准,客户都不会意识到其实这些服装其实还没有生产出来,品牌公司则将根据订单进行生产。在智能生产功能的协助下,当地小型的工厂将不断出现,并且能够更快、更有效地完成订单,从而大大减少浪费。

在自动化数字生态系统中利用 3D 技术的精准功能

目的是为了让时装公司创建属于自己的生态系统,从而帮助他们精准理解客户的着装需求,然后将每件服装都加入到其工作流程和生产周期中。即使在服装设计阶段,公司也需要通过材料选购渠道准确了解哪些布料和辅料的供货成本以及供货时间。客户与每一件产品的互动反馈信息都将汇总到系统中,并影响下一次的生产。将3D服装的精准功能与自动化的数字生态系统相结合,就可以实现这个目标。

当下的时尚和服装设计工作流程,包括网络购物,需要加快一些进程,而未来的目标就是跨入数字化时代。我们可以通过将设计、制作和销售服装的实际体验引入到虚拟世界中从而实现这样的目标。通过将数字化3D预生产流程与一流的网络店铺的完美集合,未来通过虚拟服装和虚拟试衣间实现的真实的在线体验将非常逼真,用户甚至都不知道按照他们量身定做的模特正在试穿数字化服装。最终,我们将看到按照每位客户的尺寸定制的模特试穿逼真服装的效果,让客户感到所见的是自己的虚拟双胞胎在虚拟的镜子中呈现的效果。
