Partex Apparel Selects E-Fit Simulator By Tuka

Tukatech Inc. -- a Los Angeles-based software and product development solutions provider for the apparel and sewn goods industry -- reports that El Salvador-based performance and athletic apparel manufacturer Partex Apparel International has implemented the E-Fit Simulator by Tuka, a 3-D virtual sample and fit development system for designers, pattern makers and apparel manufacturers. The simulator takes digital patterns and a set of values such as stretch, weight and texture, and generates a digital sample of the garment, which is then draped on a 3-D virtual fit model.

"We are all looking at reducing the development time," said Juan C. Zighelboim, co-owner of Partex. "The 3-D virtual samples make more sense today than ever. We expect to reduce time and cost significantly with [the] 3-D sampling process. I especially love the built-in motion simulator that gives instant feedback on mistakes so we can correct and move on immediately."

Tukatech reports the installation of the E-Fit Simulator at Partex Apparel is the first in Central America.
