SMARTER, FASTER PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
Created by ColorDigital in partnership with the German Fashion Institute (DMI), the DMIx Cloud is the first fully integrated cloud-based communications platform for designers and suppliers around the world to share virtual product data. Taking the product development process from analogue to digital, the safe, standardised environment uses real, physical data to produce perfect digital simulations with an unmatched level of colour and texture accuracy. This enables fashion and textiles brands to decide whether a colour or material fits their needs without the need to send or produce unnecessary lab dips or fabric samples.
From the 4th to 6th September 2018, the elements that make up the DMIx Cloud come together for a special Digital Textile Connection exhibition as part of the Next Tex Innovations Showcase at Munich Fabric Start. Learn more about the software and apparatus that currently connect to the DMIx cloud for smarter, faster product development below.
Defining and communicating colour has long been a challenge, but now thanks to ColorDigital’s colour matching software, hues can be converted into unique digital codes that can be stored, edited and shared over the DMIx Cloud.
Total Appearance Capture (TAC™) Ecosystem by X-Rite Pantone
The award-winning TAC Ecosystem transforms material scans into highly accurate digital texture files for use in 3D rendering applications as well as the Virtual Light Booth: an immersive 3D environment that maps material samples onto virtual objects.
Offering an unparalleled simulation of human form, cut and fabric, Vidya, the 3D simulation software by Assyst, enables garment manufacturers to digitally check fit, fabric behaviour and drape on all body shapes and sizes quickly and cost-effectively at the click of a button.
Epson SureColor SC-F6200 and SC-P5000 Printers
Ensuring consistent colour from monitor to print, the SureColor SC-F6200 is a professional digital dye sublimation roll-to-roll printer developed for the production of high-quality printed textiles, while the large format SureColor SC-P5000 is designed for proofing, fine art and photography applications that can achieve near-perfect colour matching of up to 99% of Pantone Solid Coated Colours.
For over 20 years, the family run company Peter Büdel Accessoires has manufactured custom and readymade fasteners, labels, buttons and other haberdashery. Via the DMIx Cloud, Peter Büdel can transform 3D rendered designs into solid, physical prototypes made with a HD 3D printer.
