Companies work with Hohenstein’s seasoned engineers, 3D fitting experts and pattern designers to review and optimize their processes, adapt them to 3D and implement an effective digital workflow. The new lab also accesses Hohenstein’s material testing lab for digitizing material parameters.

Avatars_in_Motion_2The Digital Fitting Lab covers all requirements for successful and efficient translation of 3D designs into well-fitting products and realistic digital product communication:

Sizes: the knowledge and the measurements of the target group are crucial
Pattern: a solid pattern is a prerequisite for good fit and consistent manufacturing and the basis for using avatars
Avatars: life-like representation of the target group is key to designing across sizes and projecting brand image
Material: realistic simulation depends on accurate, consistent material characteristics
Visualization: 3D imagery aids product communication or supplier instructions
3D fitting: digital prototyping can be done with the wholistic knowledge of shapes, construction and materials. Engineers and 3D fitting experts work on reliable methods for successful 3D fitting
Fit in motion (4D): movement affects fit and appearance; fit affects movement
Training: consulting services, workshops and the Hohenstein Academy help get team members and suppliers working efficiently

Related modular services are available for companies at any phase of the 3D development process. The Digital Fitting Lab customizes services for use with various 3D simulation software.

3D fitting is especially dependent upon accurate and consistent material parameters. Digitized parameters must meet the requirements of various systems to produce a realistic simulation of material behavior and accurate fit.

Hohenstein’s clothing engineers have been industry leaders in fit testing and development since 1946. The knowledge behind the Digital Fitting Lab is fueled by continuous research to create solutions for enhanced fit, including motion studies and moving avatars.
