EFI Optitex unveils 3D Design Illustrator for garments
EFI Optitex software, headquartered in the US and a leading provider of an integrated 2D/3D CAD/CAM apparel platform technology that enables users to quickly create true-to-life 3D digital garments, has launched the Optitex 3D Design Illustrator, a plug-in tool allowing designers the freedom to validate and customise 3D garments in Adobe Illustrator.

Through working in the native design environment on a PC or a Mac, designers can visualise 3D garments, with accurate proportion and scaling, and customise the garment’s fabric, texture, print patterns and graphic placement without waiting for a printed sample.

The plug-in works by importing 2D and 3D pattern files or building block libraries into Adobe Illustrator and activating a window with a 3D representation of the pattern side-by-side. Users can export the final file as a picture or 3D file, validate designs among teams, and send directly for digital or sublimation printing.

Guy Alroy, head of textile product management, EFI Productivity Software said, “3D adoption is already a necessity for nearly every successful fashion company, and in that space, it is important to onboard all teams from design to production. Now, entire teams can enable 3D capabilities to streamline the whole design to print workflows, letting them focus on creativity, reduce physical prototypes, and get to market faster than before.”

EFI also offers Fiery DesignPro textile design plug-ins for Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop on Mac or Windows computer platforms. Fiery DesignPro cost-effectively improves textile design speed and accuracy, lets designers experiment more confidently, and communicates colour consistently from design to production. (GK)
