3D Technology & AI Dictionary

March 25, 2024

In this dictionary, we aim to provide clear definitions and explanations of key terms related to 3D technology in order to democratize 3D technology so it’s accessible to everyone. Whether you are interested in health, fashion, tech, or simply curious about the future of body scanning technology we're here to help you navigate the complexities of AI-driven solutions. 

Key Terms

Avatar: An avatar is a digital representation or image that represents a person in a virtual environment. Your avatar is the representation of your body that is used to visualize how garments will look on you.

Body Shape Matching: The process of using advanced technology, such as AI and 3D scanning, to analyze and match an individual's body shape with their digital twin within a database.

Digital Twin: Another person in our database who has the most similar body shape to you and has already tried on and validated the size of the garment that you are matched with. 

LiDAR Technology: LiDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure variable distances to the Earth's surface. LiDAR technology powers precise body scanning and measurement, and helps create detailed 3D models of clothing and accessories.

Match: A match refers to the process of pairing an individual with clothing items or that suit their body shape, size, and style preferences. This process is powered by AI algorithms, 3D scanning technology, and LiDAR sensors.

Point Cloud: A point cloud is a collection of data points in a three-dimensional coordinate system. In fashion tech, point clouds are often used to represent the surface of a physical object, such as a garment or a body, in digital form. Point clouds are typically generated using 3D scanning technology and can be used for tasks such as body scanning, garment design, and virtual fitting.

Virtual Fit Tech: Virtual fit tech refers to technology that enables users to virtually try on clothing and assess fit and style preferences without physically wearing the garments.

3D Fitting: The use of three-dimensional modeling and scanning technologies to ensure clothing fits accurately and comfortably on the body. 3D fitting involves digitally fitting them to the wearer's digital twin, allowing for precise customization and tailoring.
