Abstract

The speed of the leader is the speed of the gang (Ash, 2001). In our fast-forward culture we live to work by constantly striving for new technologies, innovations and efficiencies. Everyday, companies are releasing new gadgets and software to make our lives easier. Some companies are starting from scratch, while others are building off of key elements already established from other platforms. 3D design software has bounded together elements of 2D pattern making and 3D CAD technology to create photo-realistic renderings of garments. Through this groundbreaking creation, large corporate companies and manufactures are able to increase the speed and accuracy of the supply chain system. With this 3D design software, factories and designers can visually see the final product virtually before any fabric is cut. This helps the designers make immediate modifications if required and for factories to maintain a stricter quality control, reducing errors. As the fashion industry aggressively progresses into this new digital realm, universities are following suit so that they can product industry leaders to propel innovation even further. The fashion industry design tools and supply chain that we know today is flourishing into a new digital decade with the help of 3D Design software.

Designing Digital: Outlining the past, present and future of digital 3D technology in the fashion industry and university.

The speed of the leader is the speed of the gang (Ash, 2001). In our fast-forward culture we live to work by constantly striving for new technologies, innovations and efficiencies. Everyday, companies are releasing new gadgets and software to make our lives easier. Some companies are starting from scratch, while others are building off of key elements already established from other platforms. 3D design software has bounded together elements of 2D pattern making and 3D CAD technology to create photo-realistic renderings of garments. Through this groundbreaking creation, large corporate companies and manufactures are able to increase the speed and accuracy of the supply chain system. With this 3D design software, factories and designers can visually see the final product virtually before any fabric is cut. This helps the designers make immediate modifications if required and for factories to maintain a stricter quality control, reducing errors. As the fashion industry aggressively progresses into this new digital realm, universities are following suit so that they can product industry leaders to propel innovation even further. The fashion industry design tools and supply chain that we know today is flourishing into a new digital decade with the help of 3D Design software.
