Live fit sessions on O/Cloud. With Optitex’s newly upgraded platform, you can conduct virtual fit sessions directly and collaboratively… in the cloud! View your garments and fit data in 3D, and add comments/action items on the fly, plus:

  • Tension maps and mesh – including stretch in weft and warp directions, and distance to avatar, are now automatically exported from PDS to O/Cloud
  • In agreement with Alvanon, you can now view Alvanon avatars from PDS to O/Cloud, and display them together with garment styles along with the tension map and mesh data

Tech Pack Essentials. With this new licensable module in O/21, you’ll save significant time and resources on manually creating a tech pack, and gain better control of communication between brands and suppliers during your design and development process.

  • Quickly and easily generate a tech pack document, a technical description of all aspects of a style
  • Tech pack essentials include 3D colorway images, pieces images and data, measurement chart data and dimension placement schemes, stitching data and schemes, and trim information
  • Easily export data in FBX, DXF, and SVG formats for flexible formatting and usage options

Size-dependent text on patterns. Achieve greater control over instructions and information shared between patternmakers and the production floor, with the ability to set different text for each graded size

Marker. Enhanced buffer definition enables greater flexibility when defining different buffers for different edges of a piece, plus, marker table is now divided to up to six areas for improved handling of shading variance across fabric width with automatic nesting. We’ve also added new parameters to Marker reports, with complete info on pieces placed on marker table, as well as stripe/plaid parameters, and a new batch command, to automate adding flaws to a material.
