Austrian-based 3D scanning specialist 3Dcopysystems showcased innovative perspectives for personalised textile production at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York City. Big Alice, 3Dcopysystems' 3D full body scanner, became a source of inspiration for students and faculty alike when it was set up in the FIT Design and Tech Lab.

Designers from international brands, models and celebrities experienced Big Alice at FIT's Annual Awards Gala on June 14. Big Alice and Little Alice are now starting their tour in the US and will be seen and tested next in Miami and Philadelphia.

With their Alice 3D full body scanning systems, 3Dcopysystems digitises people and large, organic objects within a few milliseconds and at an accuracy of 1mm or less. Big Alice as seen during Fashion Innovation Week – an event hosted at FIT by Michael Ferraro, executive director of the FIT/Infor Design and Tech Lab - is equipped with 64 high-resolution cameras that capture the subject - static or moving - from 64 different angles. Along with the 3D model, Alice delivers a high-resolution texture map which is the key factor for a variety of digital 3D applications in fashion, advertising or the gaming and film industry. Additionally 3D scan data can be used for human body measurements and 3D printing.

"The extraordinary quality of our high-resolution 3D scans and the associated texture surprised and inspired the fashion experts at FIT and introduced them to new possibilities for the individualisation of fashion products. In the medium term it could revolutionise personalised textile production and the online shopping experience. Partnerships with shopping centres and fashion shows are in the cards, and a few international US companies have expressed their interest in cooperating with us. We are proud to announce that our US business will be led by our distributor, Barton Hetrick from Looking Glass Arts," says Christof Kirschner, managing director of 3Dcopysystems, about his company's successful start in the United States.

Moving forward, 3Dcopysystems is working on its next innovation: 4D scanning. This will make it possible to digitise entire movements in an absolutely realistic way –a great means of studying the behaviour of fabrics as they move. (SV)
