DeSL Highlights 3D Capabilities

Today’s powerful 3D imaging leaves no question that it is the most efficient way of digitally viewing product designs. DeSL has the ability to import and work with 3D generated images directly within PLM.  ADD 3D FILES TO YOUR TECH PACKS DeSL knows the importance of a thorough tech pack and designers can agree, the more detailed a tech pack, the less room for error. By having a 3D viewer within PLM, each product can have a 3D tech pack. Designers have the ability to manipulate images by zooming in and out to gain a better view of the style. Comments can be made directly on a specific, highlighted part of the 3D file. 3D images can be used as sample reviews during meetings, giving teams a clear, realistic representation of the garment. This process leads to less back and forth with manufactures, resulting in faster products to market. AGNOSTIC

ESI Will Be at CES 2019

ESI will exhibit at CES in Las Vegas on January 8-11, 2019. Accelerating innovation in various industries, ESI works for example with leading automakers and their suppliers across the world to enable smarter manufacturing, greener designs, and safer vehicles. At CES, ESI will showcase how Smart Virtual Prototyping helps both OEMs and startups to introduce disruptive innovations and accelerate mobility developments by eliminating the need for physical prototypes. E-mobility translates into greater product complexity As automakers race to develop sustainable mobility solutions, they are challenged by complex and often conflicting needs. Adding to existing requirements such as safety or comfort, manufacturers must find ingenuous ways to extend Electric Vehicle (EV) range ─ which inevitably translates into tougher targets for weight reduction and challenging manufacturability and production costs. Connected and autonomous vehicles bring yet another layer of complexity. A unique engineering approach to boost innovation ESI offers a holistic view of the impact of one
