Politecnico di Milano, the largest technical university in Italy, has selected DesignConcept, design and product development software, and Diamino, the marker-making software by Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials—fabrics, leather, technical textiles and composite materials, for the school’s curriculum.

Politecnico’s commitment to research and innovative design, which has enabled it to become one of Europe’s top architecture, design and engineering universities, made Lectra the natural choice to ensure that students and researchers have access to the latest in design tools and techniques. With Lectra, students in Politecnico’s master’s degree program in yacht design can develop a thorough understanding of the technical and artistic elements of styling pleasure-craft interiors and management of complex reinforcement materials used during production, Lectra said in a statement.

DesignConcept is a comprehensive product development solution, covering the entire process from 2D and 3D design through prototyping to development and manufacturing.

Professor Andrea Ratti at the University said, “DesignConcept will be a valuable addition to our training program because it enables students to design and generate photorealistic renderings of marine interior furniture, from the wooden structure to the upholstered cover, and quickly modify them. The ability to optimize the aesthetics, feasibility and production costs on-screen is a powerful learning tool.”

Céline Choussy Bedouet, marketing director for automotive and furniture, Lectra said, “We are honoured to work with a renowned university like Politecnico di Milano. We are certain that, with the combination of Politecnico’s first-class teaching methods and our advanced design solutions for upholstered interiors, students will gain the most relevant skills and knowledge for success in today’s yacht building industry.”

Politecnico di Milano trains over 38,000 engineering, architecture, and design students from around the world. The University is focused on the quality and innovation of its teaching and research as well as developing fruitful relationships with the business and manufacturing world.

Lectra develops the most advanced specialized software and cutting systems and provides associated services to a broad array of markets including fashion (apparel, accessories, footwear), automotive (car seats and interiors, airbags), furniture, as well as a wide variety of other market sectors, such as aeronautical and marine industries, wind power and personal protective equipments.
