3D fashion design, 3D design software, Fashion design, and Digital prototyping
The short-term aim of this R&D project (financed by the Centre of Expertise Creative Industries) is to develop a virtually simulated textile database that renders 3D visual representations of these fabrics. The idea is for this database to be open source and be able to interface with 3D design applications such as those of Lectra. The textile database will include a number of different digital datasets per textile that contain information about the fabric’s drape, weight, flexibility etc., to virtually render prototypes in a 3D simulated environment. As such, in building garments via a 3D software design application, designers will be able to see how a garment changes as new textiles are applied, and how textiles behave when constructed as different garments. This will take place on 3D avatars, which may be bespoke body scans, and will allow for coordinated and precise fitting and grading.

RAPID prototyping, BUSINESS planning, and BUILDINGS
The article reports on a building planned by Sikorsky for a Rapid Prototyping and Military Derivatives Completion Center at its Schweizer Aircraft subsidiary in Elmira, New York. The new center is a step in the long-range corporate strategy to increase capacity to meet the growing demand for military products. It will be branded the Sikorsky HAWK Works @ Schweizer Aircraft and be the primary completion center for all Black Hawk and Naval Hawk derivative aircraft-mostly for foreign customers.
