Browzwear update allows designers to replace samples with digital twins

Browzwear has updated its VStitcher and Lotta platforms to enable faster and more accurate creation of photo-realistic visualisations

By Michelle Russell

Browzwear says the latest release, version 2022.1, includes software integrations supporting faster creation of photo-realistic visualisations as well as features proving greater assurance that fabric representations in 3D share the physics of those in real life.

Internet’s Next Revolution: Can Web 3.0 Unlock Decentralized and Intelligent Internet?

Big tech companies have created massive ecosystems that offer the internet’s key services, making it impossible for users to break from their “walled garden” and ultimately surrender control of their data. A sharp rise in public awareness about data privacy and the value of their data has stimulated new awareness around web 3.0 networks. Web 3.0 is the third iteration of the internet, designed by token-based economics to wrest the control of user data from big tech companies and provide a user-centric internet. It creates a mesh of peer-to-peer communication and decentralized governance structures to enable individuals and organizations to tackle data privacy and censorship threats. Reasons to read: An increasing number of startups and tech players are shifting gears to create blockchain-powered decentralized ecosystems for different sector-specific applications and services. Against this backdrop, businesses need more awareness of the fast-paced fundamental restructuring of the internet. The report highlights the current state of play and the future potential of web 3.0 networks in driving decentralized and user-controlled internet. This is anticipated to unlock new possibilities for enterprises across sectors such as financial services, gaming, sports, media & entertainment, retail, and technology, among others. Read our report and gather insights on the following topics:
  • Evolution of the internet
  • Active players in the web 3.0 ecosystem
  • Key applications by major sectors

With the confidence that 3D garments are true digital twins of physical items, brands and manufacturers can leverage them at every step from concept to commerce, eliminating waste, reducing errors and speeding time to market, it adds.

Real-time photorealistic visualisations in hyper-speed

The latest software release adds the power of real-time, true-to-life rendering via integration with Unreal Engine (UE), Epic Games’ 3D computer graphics game engine. As the new standard for rendering in VStitcher, the technology driving photorealistic experiences in popular games such as Fortnite, will automatically generate visualisations on par with cinematic CGI in the 3D window as the garment is being created.

By incorporating UE, Browzwear says it will considerably accelerate the process of creating even more realistic visualisations, and, at the same time, reduce the amount of computing power required. With the increased clarity of garment details and the addition of accurate shadows on still images, turntables and animations, the 3D visualisations will serve as accurate digital twins suitable for showcasing and merchandising, opening new opportunities for fashion businesses to operate more efficiently and sustainably using 3D.

True-to-life fabric physics

Also included in version 2022.1 is a new system of watermarking that clarifies to users which digital fabrics are sure to share the physical properties of their real-world counterparts as verified by testing using the company’s Fabric Analyzer (FAB) technology. This technology translates a textile’s unique properties into digital form, ensuring draping and movement in 3D will be exactly the same as in real life. By verifying which digital fabrics have undergone this process through a visual watermark, Browzwear is giving customers additional assurance that 3D visualisations are true digital twins of the physical items produced. 

More accurate, adjustable fabric transparency

The new edition offers designers more control over the transparency of fabrics visualised in 3D, offering new freedom to experiment during product development. Additionally, with the added assurance that 3D visualisations are accurate representations of the garments that will be produced,  fashion merchandisers can confidently, quickly make purchasing decisions without the need for physical samples. 

”As 3D technology plays an increasingly important role in the movement toward a more sustainable fashion industry, the level of confidence that brands, manufacturers and other stakeholders have in the accuracy of visualisation is of growing importance,” said Hanan Lifshitz, VP of products, Browzwear. “The addition of FAB watermarks and Unreal Engine are just two of the many ways we are helping to reduce the industry’s environmental impact while also supporting better business practices that drive impact for the world overall.”

Last month, Browzwear partnered with The Lycra Company to provide designers using the 3D platforms VStitcher and Lotta with the ability to quickly and easily develop products incorporating fabrics containing Lycra, Lycra T400, and Coolmax fibres.
