Lectra Introduces Modaris V5 Solution
Lectra, Paris, has made available its Modaris V5 pattern design and grading software to
manufacturers, brands and retailers involved in the apparel supply chain. The solution offers a
number of new features.
Juergen Schuette, vice president, technical design and development, DKNY, believes Modaris's new Dynamic Measuring Chart to be extremely useful. "Measurements remain displayed on the pieces and are updated automatically as pieces are modified," he explained. "The drawings can be displayed in the measurement chart, indicating where the measurement is being taken. Converting styles to and from other CAD systems is very easy and convenient."
Interoperability between CAD/CAM solutions is increased with integrated and easy-to-use conversion tools, according to Lectra. Modaris is compatible with any generic import or export file format, enabling pattern designers to easily share files and avoid formatting problems.
New job-oriented guide functions that automate recurring pattern design tasks also increase efficiency, according to the company, by reducing the learning curve.
A new, optional Asset Manager tool uses existing models to create new patterns more quickly.
