Optitex, a leading 2D & 3D CAD and virtual prototyping software provider and Alvanon, the global leader in integrated fit solutions for the apparel industry, announced a collaboration that will enable apparel and fashion companies to use a digital version of their custom-designed Alvanon body forms in Optitex’s cutting-edge 3D Suite.
 
By bringing 100% accurate AlvaForm avatars into Optitex’s 3D environment, the resulting solution will offer a viable, realistic, and highly cost-effective virtual alternative to traditional product prototyping and development.
 
“The Fashion and Apparel industry is constantly looking for ways to optimize the product development process, and that is driving more and more products to be prototyped digitally.” said Asaf Landau, CEO of Optitex. 
 
“Our partnership with Alvanon highlights the industry's evolution into the digital arena, with the world's leading size and fit experts supplementing their existing physical tools with virtual ones. We are proud that they are doing so in Optitex’s 3D environment, and are happy to be collaborating with such industry leaders.”
