ISRAEL: Optitex and McNeel speed prototype process
OptiTex, the developer of 2D and 3D CAD systems for the fashion industry, hopes to increase productivity, shorten time to market, and improve quality and fit through a new partnership with McNeel.
The partnership tackles the textile market's production challenges by coupling McNeel's rapid prototyping and 3D modelling tools with OptiTex's technical pattern making capabilities and 3D physical simulation.
The joint solution digitally connects design and prototyping divisions with the relevant visualisation, pattern making and production floor departments. The outcome is said to be a reduction in the number of physical samples, which are replaced by multiple, customisable virtual prototypes.
