Most 3D Design/Prototyping software are designed for designers to quickly construct a garment to validate the fit, or to generate eye-catching visual assets without having to really build the garment. TG3D Studio employ a different concept when we design the Scanatic™ DC Suite. We want the designers to be more like a "programmer" where they can plan out all the variance and options that could possibly be included in the design, so that this design can easily be extrapolated into many more possibilities. The designer can create the SKUs in Scanatic™ DC Suite directly or upload the design project to the Scanatic™ StyleBook Service. The actual 3D garment creation then will happen on the Scanatic™ for Fashion Portal with an easy to use configurator. The idea is that anyone that can use a browser will be capable of generating the 3D apparel assets directly without having to ask the 3D Designers to do everything. This leaves the 3D Designers with more time to focus more on what they do the best - building the design projects.
Let's take the following single breasted & two button blazer for example, the panels at the bottom of the image define the fit and the "single breasted" aspect of the style which are not changeable and will be used as the "shared panels" or the "platform".
On top of the "shared panels", you can add as many interchangeable options as you'd like. In this very instance, we have included:
- 4 breast pockets
- 9 lapel styles
- 20 pocketing options including ticket pocket/no ticket pocket
- 3 vents for the back
This design project alone can create a permutation up to 2,160 combinations. However, this can be completely by simulating 4 + 9 + 20 + 3 sets of modular parts all on top of the shared panels instead of having to actually stitch 2,160 garments on the computer.
Once the design project has been finalized on the Scanatic™ DC Suite and uploaded to Scanatic™ StyleBook Service, you can see the design project under Scanatic™ for Fashion Portal -> Menu -> Apparels -> Design Project
click the 3 dots on the design project's upper corner -> Edit Design Project -> PatternBRIC
The StyleBook Service can automatically decode design project and create an icon for all the modular parts that were programmed in by the 3D designer.
The FabricBRIC allows you to assign fabrics scanned using the Scanatic™ Nuno3D Service (accessible through Scanatic™ for Fashion -> Menu -> Fabric) to the design project
TrimsBRIC lets you assign the trims to the design project that were either included in the TG3D Collection or uploaded separately through Scanatic™ DC Suite.
Once the Design Project is set up completely, you will be able to create new SKUs
