Tukatech, Inc., the garment and apparel industry's leading provider of fashion technology solutions, has announced that Hochschule Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences, the largest European education centre in textile and clothing for education and research, has deployed its TUKAcad, pattern making grading and marker software, and TUKA3D, 3D fashion design and development software.

Professor Michael Ernst has been the lead coordinator in implementation of the Tukatech systems at the University.

Michael said, “Tukatech offers one of the most powerful CAD solutions on the market. Not only do they offer an incomparably easy to handle 2D tool with all relevant functions for pattern making, grading, and marker making (TUKAcad), but they also offer a 3D virtual product development tool to check fit and design directly on customised avatars (TUKA3D). By assigning fabric characteristics and monitoring drape while the model is both static and in motion - stakeholders from all over the world can communicate and discuss results quickly and easily. Both TUKAcad and TUKA3D have both proved to be easy to work and lecture with.”

Sonia Chhabra, director of Tukatech said, “Tukatech is committed to providing educational institutes with the resources to develop a highly skilled workforce for the future. Over 500 universities in 23 countries are using TUKAcad, TUKA3D, and many other Tukatech systems. We are pleased to welcome Niederrhein University as a customer in Germany, and we look forward to adding value in the European market." (GK)
