3D design and prototyping software specialist Browzwear has announced the general availability of its API in a move it says marks an industry first and grants developers additional flexibility to integrate plugins and transition between external applications and in-house processes.

Browzwear's API is a conduit between its 3D solution and third-party technology platforms to collaborate interoperably. 

Apparel companies working with Browzwear now have the ability, through custom extensions and plugins, to build, customise and manage a completely digital workflow by seamlessly connecting and embedding multiple applications within their existing platforms. The release further reinforces the linkages between both customers and partners, according to the firm.

By utilising Browzwear's API, developers can build and connect extensions in fields such as asset management, rendering processing, costing, and visualisation tools. Both clients and technology partners have already utilised Browzwear's API before its general availability connecting tech solutions by PTC, Centric Software, Metail, BeyondXR, FNX, Trapdoor Creative, and BeProduct.

"It is essential for companies to focus on ways to improve their overall business outcomes, and Browzwear's Open API allows companies to enjoy a faster and more efficient way of working," said Avihay Feld, CEO at Browzwear. "Fashion and apparel businesses are now able to cut back on costs, time and effort with the automated and integrated processes". 

Earlier this month, Browzwear said its VStitcher and Lotta platforms now feature the 4,320 colour references of Archroma's Color Atlas library to help accelerate the process from creative idea to production.
