2D/3D CAD Integration
The 2D / 3D integration allows working simultaneously on the pattern and on the 3D prototype. Immediately visualizing the garment and all the changes with real definition during the design let you to avoid the prototyping phase, speeding up the work flow considerably.
V Stitcher™ is the tool that replaced prototyping in the fashion industry. When a model is imported in DXF, you get a realistic fit of each garment. Pressure onto the skin, tension and elasticity of the fabric are simulated in a realistic fashion. There is a wide range of customizable dummies available in more than 20 poses and parameters. Companies using this software found a 35% reduction in time to market and drastically decreased the production of prototypes.
Lotta™ is the 3D solution specifically developed to speed up the design of a single item of clothing or a whole collection. You can access a rich library of customizable base patterns. Personalize them with different cuts, fabrics and details. Fast and intuitive, the program is perfectly integrated with Adobe Illustrator and it allows you to load the necessary textures to get an endless array of variants for every design.
When it comes to fashion, Columbia Sportswear has always been at the forefront of innovation. Now, they are becoming even more innovative by means of a technology that makes them more creative, saving time and cutting prototype production.
