    Design Perfectly fitting attires with 3D Body Scanning Technologies

    Is there anyone who want his or her don’t want perfectly fitting and precisely designed clothes? Is there? No, there won’t be any one as everyone having slightest of fashion awareness wish to wear the clothes which are 100 % precise in terms of fitting; although not everyone manages to get such attires that is a different thing. For designers and clothing manufactures it is challenge to cut and stitch the skin fit cloths for their clients, but such a challenge is a thing of past . Now, with revolutionary evolution of 3D body scanning technologies, things have changed dramatically for the clothing industry.
    3D body measurement technology have a number of traits that need to be discussed and embrace, here we are listing the few traits of this technology in regards of fashion industry and the people who use such technology-
    1. 3D body scanning allows you to measure the human body precisely; yes, you don’t even have to touch the person.
    2. Online retailers now can easily deliver the cloths to their customers without worrying about any possible flaw in the fitting. With 3D scanners virtual avatars can be formed and this makes it very easy for the makers to design the clothes accordingly.
    3. 3D scanners can work hand in hand with the computerized graphics and craft the design on the fabric adequately.
    4. There is something called pattern software grading, which has made designers job much easy as one can generate the patterns with the help of software.
    These were some traits of 3D scanners and technology that was true in regards of fashion industry. Apart from the fashion and clothing industry, Medical, fitness, research, printing and consultancy are some of the other work fields which are experiencing positive changes because of 3D scanning technology. Similar to fashion industry, this technology has all the right impacts on the other industries and in this time and age of modernity, such technology really holds the stake.

Project Brief

21-Tech partners study and share the effective use of Personal Mobile Technologies (PMTs) by gallery facilitators in their work with visitors. The initial three years (2011-2013) of 21-Tech are funded in large part by a 21st Century Museum Professionals award from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The project is led by the Children’s Museum of Houston in partnership with Lawrence Hall of Science, New York Hall of Science, Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, and Sciencenter.
