Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials—textiles, leather, industrial fabrics and composite materials—, is pleased to announce the release of the latest versions of DesignConcept Furniture (V2R2) and Formaris Furniture (V6R1), specially developed for the furniture and upholstery industries.

DesignConcept Furniture (V2R2): a unique & comprehensive 3D CAD solution for the prototyping and development of upholstered furniture products

The first CAD solution specifically created for the upholstered furniture sector, DesignConcept Furniture (V2R2) enables prototyping and product development specialists to explore a variety of designs and considerably accelerate their time-to-market.

With this advanced solution, the virtual prototyping process becomes completely integrated. The software deals with 3D modeling from sketches—a major breakthrough in CAD—and the preparation of cutfiles, as well as the development of technical briefs for upholstery (stitching, assembly, bill of materials, coding, etc.).

One of this version's most innovative new features is an automated marker-making module that allows material consumption and associated costs to be calculated during the design phase. Depending on the production methods used, this can be very early on in the development process. Through this module, the impact on material consumption and sewing lengths of any modification to a style can be gauged in real time. With Lectra's new DesignConcept Furniture offer, costs are no longer an inevitable and uncontrollable result of decisions made but can be managed and anticipated.

“We have developed these new versions in order to offer an unprecedented approach to product development, one that gives designers more options in their decision-making process by providing them with improved visibility over the financial implications of their choices,” said Daniel Harari, Lectra CEO. “This means they can make a more direct contribution to their company's performance.”

Moreover, DesignConcept Furniture can be used to manage all the information needed to produce industrial briefs required to manufacture new models. It handles everything from the technical and assembly instructions to the digital creation of cutting templates and the overall production plan.

DesignConcept Furniture: a specific response to the needs of upholstered furniture companies

Lectra engineers have responded to recent changes in the furniture market by developing features that accelerate the decision-making process. These functions help users address customer demand for an increased number of models and enable them to stand up to the fierce competition they receive from low-cost countries. With DesignConcept Furniture, designers can propose up to five times more virtual models than was previously possible. Simulation tools enable them to explore more ideas andaccess information regarding quality and cost control.
