LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – Tukatech, the industry’s leading fashion technology solutions provider, released the latest version of TUKA3D, the most used 3D system around the globe. The 2022 release offers an open system that allows designers, brands, retailers, and their factories to work efficiently within a virtual process.
“Each 3D system requires three elements: a 2D flat pattern, a 3D avatar, and the digital cloth. All three are not the same across all 3D systems, hence the vendors who develop the final product cannot use data coming from other 3D systems used by designers,” says Ram Sareen, Founder, and CEO of Tukatech. “We have the largest 3D user base where FIT is the main focus. Our avatars are built with either actual body scanning or 3D sculpting. In 2021, we allowed users of other 3D systems to start with an actual replica avatar from our extensive library of over 700 models. This gives the same results regardless of who added value at each stage. The vendors can see the fit and start from that data to make the final garment.”
For instance, a designer can use CLO, Browzwear, or any other 3D program, so long as they use the same avatar which is a replica of the real fit model, the 2D patterns will FIT, and the look can be created by designers and sent to the vendor. Since everyone is using the same avatar, the 2D pattern can be used to make the final fit sample.
In TUKA3D, the vendor can see the same 3D fit model’s body, animated to perform real-time motion simulation for fit verification. Since Tukatech offers end-to-end solutions for apparel production, after 3D fit approval, the style can then proceed through the manufacturing process.
