The process of installing OptiTex has begun at three NIFT centers: Delhi, Hyderabad and Bangalore. NIFT joins the respected list of worldwide educational institutes that have already implemented OptiTex.
NIFT provides a common platform for fashion education, research and training, and is one of India's leading fashion technology institutes. Incorporating OptiTex 2D and 3D software solutions to the study program was one more important step taken by NIFT to introduce the knitwear students with the latest technology in the fashion industry. Students would now have a smooth transition into a professional role at one of the many prospering export houses and factories around the country.
In an interview in June 2012, Prof. Kripal Mathur, Chairperson, Knitwear Design Dept. NIFT, said: "The introduction of OptiTex in the curriculum is a real breakthrough. The highlight of OptiTex is the live simulation which would help students of the Knitwear Design Department to visualize the designed product in real time. I think OptiTex will motivate and add more excitement in the design development work of the students."
"OptiTex's presence in the Indian textile market is on an accelerated growth path." Said Mr. Ran Kramer, Managing Director of OptiTex India and Sri Lanka. "We are proud to be at the forefront of the industry's technology and to be chosen by a leading academic institute to provide the next generation of professionals in India with access to Optitex 2D and 3D software solutions".
OptiTex is the leading provider of 2D and 3D CAD/CAM, and Virtual Prototyping software solutions for the apparel, automotive, aeronautics, industrial fabrics and upholstery industries.
