Modaris V6R1 is more user-friendly and offers higher performance, along with increased accuracy and speed at every stage of the model development cycle, including the creation and finalization of patterns, industrialization, grading, verification, and pre-production. A new layer interface for pattern construction ensures better quality and accuracy and reduces both the risk of error and the number of checks necessary. With Modaris V6R1, apparel professionals are able to reduce the time needed for the creation, modification, grading, and verification of their model patterns by around 20%.
In addition, Modaris V6R1's tools for automated creation and adjustment of corners, hems, and even mitered corners contribute to producing garments with a better quality of finish. These features can cut the time needed for this phase of the model industrialization process in half.
"The new version of Modaris has enabled us to save around 15% more time in our pattern-making activity compared to the previous version," said Silvio Cattarin, Design Office Manager for Tessilform, an Italian company known for its Patrizia Pepe brand of women's wear. "On grading alone we have accelerated the process by an extra 10%, and we have reduced the time necessary to finalize models by more than 20%."
