Virtual or 3D sampling follows the increasing recourse to digitalization for product development. We, at Li & Fung and Miles Promocean intensify the use of this technology.
The benefits are numerous and outstanding: – Instant review and amendment of a product, facilitating innovation and creativity – 24/7 availability for modification – Faster conception lead time (reducing development time by 5) – Generation of cost saving (reducing drastically the # of prototyping rounds) – Environmentally beneficial with less sample shipments (usually by air)
Our Miles Promocean design team is well equipped and trained and 70% of the deliveries are actually done via 3D.
As an example, the conception from scratch of this whisky glorifier. The briefing was to create an on-trade display, that would fit all brand’s bottles, and within a given unit cost. In the attached document, you are able to follow the different steps of the conception leading to this 3D sample. This is final and agreed, and now ready for physical development.
