Advanced Functional Clothing CAD Simulation System II

24 Co
In the first phase, we have successfully completed the development of multilayer garment thermal functional design CAD software technology. With the full support from the project steering committee, we will continue to develop advanced functional CAD technology according to the original plan, including: (1) database of garment patterns of different styles; (2) database of 3D human body models; (3) multi-style garment functional design simulation CAD software; (4) 3D garment thermal functional and comfort visulization software. When completing the project, we will deliver one software package that is ready for servicing textile and clothing industry, particularly for knitwear, intimate apparel and sportswear sectors.

User can follow the instructions in a user-friendly interface of the CAD system, inputting the information step by step. The factors include weather and environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, wind velocity; human activities such as sitting, running and dancing; human model factors such as sex, age, height and weight; garment features such as fibre and fabric properties. The simulation programme helps garment manufacturers evaluate the combination of fabric functional properties and environmental parameters, in turn design the functional clothing with the best functional features.

Industry Benefit

The virtual design function allows efficient product development with reasonable cost. Users can update the database by themselves to achieve a wider scope and tailor-made application.

The software is also a useful tool for training institutions offering courses on design and product development. Students can make use of the interactive platform to understand better the influence of different factors such as weather, environment and biological elements on clothing design.
