Showcasing its expertise in the field of virtual product development, the Chair of Assembly Technology for Textile Products at the Institute for Textile Machinery and High-Performance Textile Materials Technology (ITM) at TU Dresden, Dresden/Germany, presents itself for the first time at ISPO Munich Online 2021 – the international fair for sporting goods from February 1-5, 2021.
Its know-how in the determination of material parameters, digital data processing, and data transfer will be presented as well as its competencies in 3D/4D body shape recording using scanning, data animation for the 3D product development for functional clothing, and simulation for wear comfort/usage visualization.
Researchers from the ITM have been actively involved in the preparation and digital representation of material samples for the ISPO Textrends Forum. Thus, the material parameters of the ISPO Textrends Award textiles were determined for 3D fit simulations in Vidya (Assyst/Vizoo), automatically analyzed, and digitally processed by the specially developed "Material Analyzer" software.
This software in addition to other state-of-the-art CAE infrastructure, such as the recently installed 4D Scanner Move4D, are essential for the further establishment and promotion of its leading position in the field of digitalization and virtual product development for garments for high-tech applications.
