Hohenstein launches series of 4D scanning projects
Hohensteinâ€™s new 4D body scanner will be used in a series of research projects. Each project aims to advance knowledge and processes throughout the apparel industry.
Scanning in 4D shows body shape and size for the intended customer, and thus reveals the changes in body shape during relevant motions. It shows both the impact of movement on the garment and the garmentâ€™s impact on movement. Range of motion, particularly in sportswear and workwear, can be analysed for improved function.
The 4D data with 3D visualisation shortens or eliminates prototyping time and cost. It creates better data for size chart creation and pattern making. Better patterns lead to less material and product waste. Realistic size data leads to better fitting garments. Improving fit, function and ergonomic comfort affects return rates, brand loyalty and profits.
