Gerber Technology, one of the world’s leading fashion technology company and Avametric, the fabric simulation and 3D consumer applications producer, announced a partnership to offer the first end-to-end 3D platform, from consumer-facing virtual try-on applications to design, development and manufacturing.
The joint 3D platform will provide highly realistic 3D simulations that can be used from consumer-side visualization all the way through production. Users will be able to move from 2D patterns to 3D digital samples that are production ready, which can result in a savings of up to 50 percent in time and cost. The first commercially available application will be with the release of AccuMark V11. «You may hear and see many other 3D products on the market» said Karsten Newbury, senior vice president and general manager of Gerber’s Software Solutions Group, «We hear from our customers that most of them are not actually using our competitors’ 3D products because they find them too difficult to use and don’t integrate well with a 2D workflow».
«We are thrilled to be partnering with Gerber, said Ari Bloom, Avametric’s CEO. «As we explored our partnership options, we technically evaluated many of the top design and development products on the market. Ultimately we came to the conclusion that Gerber’s strategy and focus on 3D was based on accurate pattern data and on usability, and we believe this is the key to a scalability of applications that meet the core needs of the fashion industry».
