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.

"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.
