Textile and fashion design is increasingly characterized by fast changes in trend and style, but is often reliant on laborious prototyping and production workflows with long lead times. ErgoSoft developed together with other industry leaders, the new Simulate, Print & Cut workflow, part of an EU-sponsored project called CoReNet.
Led by the Center for Management Research at the German Institutes for Textile & Fiber Research, ErgoSoft partnered with Assyst GmbH and Color Textil to develop and test a streamlined workflow linking isolated steps of the design and production process. Using Assist’s virtual 3-D garment prototyping software Vidya, and Ergo Soft’s color management software TexPrint, Simulate, Print & Cut removes the need for physical garment prototypes and textile samples. Products fly through the development phase while reducing material waste and costs.
Once the design is production-ready, the virtual 3-D garment is broken up into individual parts, complete with high-resolution fabric pattern, and laid out efficiently in a PDF with the dimensions of the textile to be printed.
Contour cut lines and other post processing information can also be managed within the TexPrint RIP processes. The placed pattern ensures an economical print run, by saving material and reducing ink use by up half, while the color managed design is printed exactly how the designer anticipated.
TexPrint offers not only color management and ink-efficient print environments, but also streamlines many other steps in the production of digitally printed textiles. Working with multi-layer files, adding QR codes to identify orders or creating a cut file can be automated so that production is straightforward, and small, customized print runs can be carried out quickly.
