Lectra has announced the launch of Kaledo V4R1, the latest release of its design solution. Taken inputs from the textile customers that said product development teams and pre-production rely on the efficiency of designers to produce innovative and creative designs to ensure that fresh products reach stores on time, Lectra’s R&D teams developed this new version to respond to industry needs.
Kaledo V4R1 features a host of new tools including draper, a texture mapping module that simulates fabric on images and sketches, producing realistic results for speedy decision making in the collection and sales selection process. Kaledo realistically represents what a product will look like that enables designers to aptly present the end result to the clients or in-house design teams.
The latest release also introduces major improvements to colour management, such as better lighting options for increased colour accuracy. Users can now work with more complex knit and woven structures for sophisticated design options. Other features include new repeat, colour mask and transparency tools for more design flexibility.
