IEEE - 3DRC COLLABORATION
Many of retail and apparel industry members of our Industry Connections group are also engaged in the 3D Retail Coalition. IEEE 3DBP and RC are working together on complimentary activities that enhance the goals of each group.
The 3D Retail Coalition (3D.RC), is a collaborative group of global retailers and brands, working together to advance 3D technology for the apparel, accessories, and footwear designers, retailers, manufacturers and supply chains.
Collaboration is taking place for 3 work streams.
This sub-committee envisions standards that will accelerate new product development throughout the entire value chain and an ability for industry to adopt 3D platforms and ways of working with confidence.
This sub-committee envisions highly transferable material libraries, a standardized open materials data platform and efficient, high quality, cost effective testing methods.
This sub-committee envisions improved collaboration between educational institutions and solution developers; stronger and mutually beneficial partnerships between colleges/universities and brands/retailers; and educators and practitioners aligned on today’s 2D/3D skillsets and certification requirements.
