Highlighting 3D Capabilities

by admin in News

Today’s powerful 3D imaging leaves no question that it is the most efficient way of digitally viewing product designs. But, is your company maximizing the value from your 3D software?

DeSL has the ability to import and work with 3D generated images directly within PLM.

ADD 3D FILES TO YOUR TECH PACKS.

DeSL knows the importance of a thorough tech pack and designers can agree, the more detailed a tech pack, the less room for error. By having a 3D viewer within PLM, each product can have a 3D tech pack. Designers have the ability to manipulate images by zooming in and out to gain a better view of the style. Comments can be made directly on a specific, highlighted part of the 3D file. 3D images can be used as sample reviews during meetings, giving teams a clear, realistic representation of the garment. This process leads to less back and forth with manufactures, resulting in faster products to market.

AGNOSTIC TO 3D SOFTWARE

Not all designers or tech designers work with the same 3D software. If your brand has embraced one or more 3D tools, DeSL PLM can integrate files from each. DeSL takes an agnostic approach, ensuring each company can use its preferred software. Brands have the ability to bring in multiple 3D files into one PLM system. DeSL’s agnostic approach helps designers and tech designers settle the debate of which 3D tool works best.

BUILD A BILL OF MATERIALS

Generate your bill of materials (BOM) using the 3D files provided by your designer. 3D functionality in DeSL PLM offers the ability to view garments in 3D, add comments, and change materials and color. Garment edits in 3D can link directly to the BOM and costing. Using 3D within PLM synchronizes data while optimizing workflow.

DeSL will be showcasing PLM 3D functionality at National Retailer Federation (NRF) at Booth #805 in New York City, New York, January 13-15, 2019.
