Tukatech has launched TUKA APM, a fully automated pattern-making and grading software as a module within TUKAcad. With TUKA APM, a person of any skill level can complete a graded pattern in seconds. As easily as filling out a measurement chart, apparel vendors and factories can generate a 2D CAD pattern from measurements, including grade rules.

TUKA APM is available as an add-on module to TUKAcad via cloud-based subscription. In TUKAcad, digital pattern-makers select from a library of t-shirts, trousers, polos, dresses, and other apparel products for men, women, and children. For any of these silhouettes, the pattern-maker gives a value for each point of measure as indicated on a visual guide. Pattern-makers of any skill level can easily create a first pattern from scratch, and even specify values to instantly apply grading for larger and smaller sizes, according to Tukatech.

“Every day we have to develop and grade patterns just to create a costing marker for quotations for brands and retailers. This automated system does the work that generally involves 8-10 people and gives us the result much quicker as well,” Arshad Sattar, managing director for Timex and Fergasam in Sri Lanka said.

Most vendors have between a ten to twenty-five percent (10-25 per cent) hit rate, meaning that much of their product development manpower is allocated to styles that will never move on to production.

With TUKA APM, vendors will be able to quickly develop first patterns and have a better idea of garment cost at the beginning of the design process. TUKA APM, connected seamlessly with TUKA3D, can even generate 3D samples. This will lead to more informed decisions early in the design process. Design houses with first pattern makers can use this application to make showroom samples for developing new styles and get more productivity from less people. (GK)
