Sri Lanka's apparel industry has taken the plunge into the world of 3D design. America's Optitex, a world's leader in 2D and 3D apparel design software, has granted its leading solution to Sri Lanka Institute of Textile & Apparel (SLITA) to train designers in 3D design aspects, Sri Lankan newspapers have reported.

The initiative is part of quality enhancement programme of the Joint Apparel Association Forum (JAAF) - apex Lankan body - for its apparel and textile industry.

Industry and Commerce Minister Rishad Bathiudeen addressing the launch event of JAAF's twin Public Private Partnership initiative said,

"Today's MoU between SLITA and Juki and receiving of a licensed version of Optitex 3D design platform are steps in the right direction to enhance our reputation as a leading apparel outsourcing destination in the world."

Optitex granted free license to SLITA to install one edition of its global 3D pattern making software valued at $30,000 for Lankan designers to access the platform for the first time. With the software designing tool in hand costs will be reduced.

SLITA under the Ministry of Industry and Commerce is the national institution that fulfils the fast track and cutting edge education needs of the country's world class apparel industry. (SH)
