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
November 10, 2009
