3D Designer Role in the Workplace

Karina Lam 3D Technical Designer at SWIM USA

It has been difficult to integrate 3D designers into the workplace with the fear that they will replace other roles, and many people who have been with the company for many years are not gung-ho about 3D. What should be the role of new 3D Designers entering a company? Currently companies call those working in 3D “CAD Technicians” which does not require any garment making background. However, to use programs like Browzwear and CLO3D, you have to be Incredible at patternmaking to understand how to use it well, so for someone to move to 3D might be a step down instead of a step up. What are your thoughts on integrating these new roles?
