Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials, has announced that their privilege partner, The University of Manchester,has opened a new Advanced 3D CAD Suite at the School of Materials.

The University has chosen Lectra as a technology partner to implement 25 stations of their DesignConcept TechTex and Modaris 3D Fit solutions which will be used by both post and undergraduates studying technical textiles, composite materials, garment technology and Fashion Business Management.

DesignConcept TechTex, is the only comprehensive 3D solution featuring conceptual design, prototyping, product development and costing for products based on composite materials. The solution ensures a complete digital connection is made between concept and customer, linking the physical and virtual worlds.

At the University it will be used widely in teaching and research projects by students following the MSc Technical Textiles and the MSc by Research in Fashion Technology programs.

Modaris 3D Fit, Lectra's virtual fashion prototyping solution enables pattern-makers to control garment fit with expert precision. Validation of styles and specifications is facilitated and approvals for entire collections are accelerated. This will allow students to test their garments by virtually sewing them together and trying different fabrics and textile designs without producing a physical prototype.

The University has been a Privilege Partner with Lectra since 2007 with a 44 seat lab of textile, design and pattern design software.

“The School of Materials is dedicated to providing a state of the art environment for its students and this requires the very best in professional software. Most importantly students are gaining valuable experience of applications they will find in industry and are well equipped once they graduate,” said Professor Chris Carr from the School of Materials.

“We decided to partner with Lectra and further develop the partnership because of the existing dynamic relationship and the excellent student feedback in terms of ease of use of the software and commercial flexibility. In addition as we are developing the technology / design / fashion interface, the Lectra solutions provide the versatility to cross the boundaries and engineer multi-functional performance.”

The University of Manchester hosted the first world conference on software for Textiles and Clothing Industries in May 2009 where Lectra was a keynote speaker.
