Tukatech has launched a new CAD product that can help reduce sample approval and production time by allowing the entire supply chain to visualise garments via the Internet and share input simultaneously.

The 'e-fit simulator' and '3D Motion simulator' software create a virtual garment from a two-dimensional pattern and drapes this over a 3-D body image with life-like movement capabilities.

Designers can visualise effects of fit and fabric behaviour by making the electronic model walk, turn, bend, stretch or even flip and do summersaults.

As an add-on application to TukaCad.Net Suite, 'e-fit simulator' is said to work with all industry standard CAD systems.
