A Sportswear Brand’s Entry into 3d

Monumental Gains Realized with 3D Transformation

With the help of a seasoned WORLD OF MESH team member, a leading global sportswear brand transforms one of their business groups from a traditional 2D work setting into a cutting-edge, end-to-end 3D design environment.

The two-year project paved the way for the sportswear brand to extend new 3D processes and technologies to the rest of the company.

2D Challenges 

In a typical 2D environment, process and technology challenges persist. This limits organizations from realizing sustainability gains, and company and team performance benefits. For example, waste is inevitable in fashion apparel companies. As cross-functional project stakeholders review physical designs, feedback is often slow to emerge and varies in degree. Six rounds or more of physical fashion samples may be required to accommodate input and finalize designs. The global process, where team members may receive the first few product samples through standard mail, accounts for at least two weeks in the product schedule. Project stakeholders often travel to global locations to accelerate the feedback cycle, adding cost to the bottom line. Organizations do plan for budget overages, schedule lags and frustration, but they are not optimal outcomes.

This two-year project led the way for the sports brand to extend new 3D processes to the rest of the business.

Solution

3D Digital design transformation to the rescue!

In our sportswear brand example, the WORLD OF MESH member joined the sportswear brand team to disrupt business in a positive way. The collaborative team used resources to research, learn and test 3D software solutions; define new processes, workflows and infrastructures; develop unique software applications for new business operations; and train employees on 3D technology to ensure improvements would exist beyond project implementation. The collaborative team also scoped out asset requirements needed for future 3D project rollouts.
