Implementing 3D Virtualisation the Challenges

whichplm | June 20, 2019

Following on from his guest post in April, Amnon Shalev, CEO & Founder of Virtuality.Fashion, continues his discussion on 3D this time, collating what we have learnt so far, and applying it to the future of 3D for fashion. Virtuality.Fashion, powered by C-Design, believe in making virtual fashion prototyping effortless, affordable, and accessible to everyone.In the 5 articles we’ve published so far for WhichPLM, we’ve been covering a wide range of technological and application related issues, which impact fashion 3D virtual prototyping implementation. During these 18 months we have noticed how operations integrate 3D virtual prototyping capabilities into their workflow in different ways. As a conclusion it is safe to say that the sell and forget approach that characterized some of the 3D virtualization platforms’ vendors in the past is no longer relevant and new, consultative and project oriented implementation approaches should be considered.To emphasize some of the elements that impact the success of 3D implementations, lets review a few of the internal and external issues and trends as discussed in previous articles.

The Data Lake and the Data Scientist – Although it’s still a relatively young concept, the data lake has already been adopted by many organizations. Its primary role is to store raw structured and unstructured data in one central place, making it easy for data scientists and other investigative and exploratory users to analyze data. Without a data lake these users waste lots of time on hunting for all the data before they can begin with their actual work: analytics. In short, the data lake is supposed to shorten the data selection process that precedes the analytical work. However, the original data lake’s architecture has two severe drawbacks. One relates to the physical nature of the data lake and the other to the restricted usage of the data lake investment – it’s designed exclusively for data scientists.
