Two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) computer-aided design and manufacture (CAD/CAM) are extensively applied in the fashion industry to increase efficiency and save time and labour cost. Two of the drivers for re-engineering the current manufacturing approach of sportswear are to reduce material waste and to improve the comfort of sports bras. This research bridges the 3D anthropometry with technical 3D seamless weaving techniques exploiting cross-platform software technology—3D reverse engineering system, 2D CAD clothing system and textile CAD/CAM system—to develop seamless woven sports bra cups. The flattened 2D geometry pattern, obtained with segmentations and artificial boundary lines, was used in the weaving process, and the final woven sample proved the geometric and digital methodological feasibility.
