Project Database

Advanced Clothing Functional Design CAD Technologies

On the basis of our patented inventions, software copyrights and a range of computer models and computing simulation programs, as well as databases, advanced functional CAD technology will be developed for commercial usage in design of textiles, apparel, medical devices and buildings to achieve desirable thermal and biomechanical and medical functional performances. This is a down-stream applied research with focus on developing new applications, new computer simulating technologies, new computer simulation software for functional design and new informatics technology platform that can be immediately used by Textile and Clothing (TC) companies. A number of tangible and scalable technology innovations will be delivered to benefit TC companies in three stages, including: (1) multilayer garment thermal functional design CAD software technology; (2) multi-style garment functional design CAD software technology; (3) 3D garment thermal functional design CAD software technology. These deliverables are able to create higher value added services and products with unique functions for Pearl River Delta Area textile and garment manufacturers and retailers and to enhance their competitiveness in the market places. In each stage (i.e. one year), we will deliver one software package that is ready for transferring to industry.
