Lectra hosted a seminar in France focusing on the use of 3D technologies in the fashion product development process. The two day event brought together over 40 delegates from around the world. It centered on how fashion companies can benefit from integrated 3D technology to optimize and streamline the end-to-end collection development process to improve competitiveness.
Emphasis was placed on the growing need for companies to assess the relevance of their business models in a reset economy and to meet the growing demand for innovation from consumers across the world. Special focus was placed on the importance of linking design and product development to stand out in a market that is increasingly plagued by uniformity.
Customers were given demonstration of Lectra’s lean cutting room, developed to support operational excellence at the production stage. Lectra 3D technology allows garment manufacturers to reduce prototypes by 20 per cent and deliver to clients faster and with less waste. It allows a 3D image of the product before sampling. That allow manufacturers to develop better, more consistent, products especially in terms of sizing and grading. Using Lectra 3D, it’s possible to visualize prints.
Lectra is the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials—fabrics, leather, technical textiles and composite materials.
