Benefits of 3D Digital Prototyping

Make Better Design Decisions to Place Orders with Confidence

Make informed design decisions with unwavering confidence. By visualizing and assessing designs digitally, ensure your designs align with your vision before placing orders for physical production. 

Increase Efficiency for Design, Factories, and Teams

Enhance efficiency within your design teams and collaboration with factory partners. Streamline communication, share digital information, and seamlessly collaborate for more efficient workflows and processes.

Textile Waste Reduction and Fewer Carbon Emissions

Significantly reduce sampling wastage in terms of less physical materials needed, fewer packages shipped, decreased energy and equipment use, and better leveraging your sample-makers’ time and efforts.  

Save Time and Money, while Reducing Time to Market

Digital prototyping empowers you to save both time + money. By creating more accurate and refined designs from the outset, you streamline your development process, resulting in significant time and cost savings.

Our Process


Clo3D allows us to create, adjust, and perfect patterns + designs in 3D environment before cutting a single snip of fabric. We can play around with ideas, make quick adjustments, and try new things with zero waste. Plus, it speeds up the process from concept to market, allowing you to test new waters with low commitment. 
+ What is Clo3D, and how does using it benefit my fashion brand? 🌍
Before we dive in–we'll need a bit of homework from you first. We'd love to get our hands on tech packs with all the specs, patterns, fit model info, and sizes you'd like rendered. Bill of materials and any specific callouts are also super helpful have ready. To ensure we're on the same page design-wise, here's a Google Doc with project specific questions that do the trick. 
+ What information do need to start a Clo3D project with you? 📝 How do I communicate my design vision to the team? 🎨
Not at all! Whether you're a seasoned pro or just dipping your toes into the Clo3D pool, we've got you covered. Our team is here to guide, support, and collaborate with you, turning your ideas into stunning 3D realities. So, even if Clo3D sounds like a foreign language right now, don't sweat it – we're excellent translators.
+ Do I need any prior experience with Clo3D to work with your agency? ✨
We're flexible! If you've got existing patterns or designs, that's a fantastic start, and it might even save you some dimes since it's less work-intensive. But if you're starting from scratch, it's all good. We love a good creative challenge; we're all about making your vision come to life.
+ Can you work with existing patterns and designs, or do you start from scratch?🧵✂️
We're not happy unless you're over the moon with joy. If the initial design or prototype doesn't make your heart sing, we'll roll up our sleeves and get back to the drawing board. 
+ What happens if I'm not satisfied with the initial design or prototype?

Having Kristen and team there to help me go through the process, end to end, from design through to identifying a manufacturer, to picking fabrics and hardware, refining samples and beyond, was invaluable. I am very grateful for the team’s responsiveness and efficiency—it made it so easy to partner with them and to have a truly productive and collaborative working relationship! I am absolutely grateful to have had Kristen and team on Team Sheila. I couldn’t have done it without them!
