“The Renaissance of Product Creation: Creating Physical Product with Digital Tools”

Engendering trust in apparel development and getting to fit approval has always been necessary for success on many levels.

  • Integrating 3D into the Product Development Process
  • What’s the ROI? (Cost, Calendar Implications-Sample Turn Time, Sustainability)
