Tukatech, provider of pattern making, grading, and marker making software, web-based product development services, PDM/PLM systems, and manufacturing equipment for garments, has launched a suite of applications, at Texprocess, trade fair for the international garment-manufacturing and textile processing industry, that concluded on May 12, in Germany.

The patent-pending applications and processes will eliminate sketching, and thus design misinterpretations. By working with existing 3D garments, real scale prints, Pantone-based true colours and pattern repeats, the entire supply chain will be able to collaborate and communicate design ideas at fraction of time and cost.

Tukatech’s suite of cloud-based product development solutions gives key players in the design process special digital tools designed with their unique requirements in mind.

The design and development circle is completed with TUKA3D Designer Edition (patent pending), an up-and-coming visualisation application that gives designers the independence to show their concepts virtually, without the need to ever touch a pattern.

In TUKA3D designer edition, one can build new styles from virtual assets. It also allows assess to print repeats and placements in true scale on a real garment body. One can showcase the final concept with images that portray the design more clearly and realistically than flat sketching ever could. The visuals can be presented in a design meeting, use them in a tech pack, or send them directly to a vendor as a reference.

Used in conjunction with the most popular graphic design software, TUKAstudio is a suite of applications for print development. One can create and preview dozens of repeat pattern options, colourway variations, and even separate colours for print screens with ease. Digital fabric development can be enhanced with fabric texturing modules.

In Adobe Illustrator, designers can fill actual graded patterns with the exact print placement. Tukatech’s Adobe Illustrator plug-in sends those graded patterns to TUKAmark, where a high-powered marker-making engine configures the pattern pieces into the most efficient layout. A digital printer prints only the area which is filled with colour, in the shape of the pattern pieces themselves, saving cost on inventory and fabric utilisation.

TUKAcloud is a web-based digital sample room that lets designers and merchandisers collaborate more efficiently with vendors and manufacturers. This application houses data exported from TUKA3D and other systems to contain all information for a developed style on a common, user-friendly platform. A built-in communication platform eliminates the need for endless email threads.

Using TUKAbank, one can find PDF patterns or 3D virtual style files. One can download for personal use, or upload new contributions, and get rewarded when others use them. Using 3D virtual styles, one can build new garments, or visualise colours and prints in TUKA3D Designer Edition. (GK)
