Simulation for Textile Design
April 28, 2021, 11:00AM (EDT)
Presented by  Traci Lamar, PhD, and Lisa Chapman, PhD,  North Carolina State University

Simulation has the potential to replace all or part of the prototyping process and is increasingly considered a pre-production strategy for reducing time and cost. Faculty at NC State University are incorporating simulation technology into our teaching and research that includes a color managed yarn inventory, and the ability to simulate knit and woven fabric as well as some on the body garments. In addition, we are utilizing functions within specialty software to teach how to evaluate knits and woven designs before production.

Traci M. Lamar, PhD, Assistant Professor, North Carolina State University
Dr. Traci M. Lamar is an Assistant Professor in Textile and Apparel Technology and Management at North Carolina State University.  This appointment followed 12 years of university experience at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and Southern Illinois University.  Prior to that, she held industry positions in apparel design and development. Dr. Lamar holds degrees from North Carolina State University, Arizona State University, and Kansas State University.

Dr. Lamar has taught undergraduate courses in textile products design, development and production management including design fundamentals, computer aided design, illustration and portfolio development, patternmaking, draping and sewn product production management.

Lisa P Chapman, PhD, Associate Professor, North Carolina State University
Dr. Lisa Chapman is University Faculty Scholar, Director of Graduate Programs, and an Associate Professor in Textile and Apparel Technology and Management at NC State University. Dr. Chapman’s research focuses on digital design technologies that aid the transition from design to manufacturing. Expertise in this area allows application of specialized knowledge to a broad spectrum of research such as integral knitting; digital printing; color calibration; CAD process modeling; 3D simulation of knitted, printed and woven fabrics; rapid prototyping; mass customization; and sustainable product design.

Dr. Chapman’s unique ability to bridge art and design with science and technology in engagement with industry has led to groundbreaking research in the areas of digital printing and knit product development. Dr. Chapman has aggressively pushed the use of digital technologies by developing computer aided design learning modules, creating The Digital Design and The Digital Manufacturing labs, and assisting small businesses and entrepreneurs as well as large global corporations.
