OptiTex and [TC]² enhance support for Tulips
OptiTex, the leading CAD software manufacturer for cut-fabrics industries, has implanted a new extension for reading OBJ geometry from [TC]2's new “avatar from 3D scan” feature in response to its customer Tulips. Tulips is a Belgian based company with a production facility in Asia that specializes in custom made lingerie with high standard fabrics.
“OptiTex has always prided itself on being responsive to the needs of our clients,” states Ran Machtinger, President and CEO of OptiTex, Ltd. “Our remarkably user-friendly software is an outgrowth of our broader customer-friendly approach, and we're very pleased to expand our software to accommodate valued customers such as Tulips who want to leverage the OBJ reader to add different types of avatars.”
Tulips uses a [TC]² NX-16 3D body scanner at their Belgian Facility to obtain personalized body measurements and asked OptiTex to add the new OBJ geometry reader to its software. OptiTex not only augmented Tulips' software; OptiTex will also include it in its standard default import/export format files list in its cutting-edge 3D Runway Designer. OptiTex has supported customers using 3D body scanners and [TC] ² technologies since 2005.
“We are fortunate to have partnered with such a responsive company as OptiTex,” says Frank Indigne, Managing Director of Tulips. “Using 3D Runway Designer not only helps us design the most elegant, sensual lingerie on the market, it helps us save money by eliminating fabric waste and speeds our time to market to finally produce a unique perfect fitting bra.”
“We are not only the CAD software of choice of leading names such as Hugo Boss and Tommy Hilfiger, but we also play a supporting role in the creation of fine undergarments,” concludes Machtinger. “We've basically have every aspect of design covered from head to toe.”
Comments Dr. David Bruner, [TC]²'s VP of Technology Development, “we are very pleased that Tulips is the first apparel company, and OptiTex the first CAD company, to showcase our new high fidelity avatar from body scan feature with their customers.”
