Graphic designers around the world are wildly enthusiastic about the fact that textile design is truly having a moment in 2020. From London to Paris to New York, bold and unique designs and prints are walking every fashion runway; while colorful and creative interior design is dominating the world of furniture and home decor.

Media platforms are awash with the work of creative textile designers around the world, creating a highly-networked marketplace for design work that did not exist a mere decade ago.

Everyone can agree that while we love an eye-dazzling textile creation, it takes a lot of work on the part of a very talented textile designer to achieve the end result. Sadly too often, however, the technological needs of modern designers fall by the wayside. While there is indeed a very heavy focus on automation in many aspects of textile and soft goods manufacturing, most of the time, this focus is on final stages of production, only. Designers can, however, benefit immensely from automation at the very beginning during the design process, as well.


Gerber is proud to announce the February 2020 release of their robust software platform, AccuMark®, AccuMark 3D, AccuNest™ and AccuPlan™, which continues to revolutionize the industry by digitizing the supply chain from 3D design right through production, making product development and production even faster, more efficient and sustainable. Already applauded by customers, the new release makes developing production-ready garments quick and easy with powerful 2D-to-3D integration and increased digital printing capabilities.

In order for brands, retailers, and manufacturers to be successful, they need a fully connected supply chain that can turn their ideas into production-ready garments in a matter of hours. Gerber Technology's all-new AccuMark February 2020 streamlines the entire process from design through product development while drastically reducing cost, material waste, and time to market. 

The Gerber Innovation Center in New York City opened for the furniture industry on February 19th with a one-of-a-kind microfactory experience. The undisputed leader of connected platforms hosted a full day of workshops, live demonstrations, and customer case studies to discuss the current challenges the furniture industry is experiencing with customization. Gerber demonstrated how companies of all sizes can conquer customization, creativity, speed and eCommerce challenges by integrating their entire process from design through production using the latest software and hardware solutions.

I have spent almost 10 years making the case for 3D technology in the apparel industry. When we look at other industries like automotive, industrial design, and architecture, we see that 3D has been a vital part of their workflow for many years now. It may be that we are spoiled in our industry. If we want to see a new dress or shirt, we can cut and sew one. An automotive company cannot make a new car every time they want to change a body line. Simply put, the product development teams in these other industries were forced to trust the 3D prototype. We, in the apparel industry, are now accepting that we need to do the same.
