Lectra Showcases Full Range of Fashion Solutions at Intermoda Guadalajara in Mexico
(Guadalajara Jal., Mexico – January, 2012) Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials—textiles, leather, industrial fabrics, and composite materials, will exhibit at Intermoda January 17-20, 2012, at the Expo Guadalajara, in Guadalajara, Mexico.
At Lectra’s stand (4102-4104-4106-5103-5105-5107), the company will present a full range of its solutions, from design to production. Working in conjunction with its education partner Universidad Jannette Klein, students will create designs during the show using Kaledo®, Lectra’s leading professional textile and fashion design software solution, which accelerates the design processes by automating repetitive tasks, and improving communication and collaboration.
Lectra will also team up with The Camara Nacional de la Industria del Vestido, who will participate in the Lectra stand, providing a 3D body scanner. Working with the 3D body scanner, Lectra will demonstrate Modaris® V7, the company’s latest version of its apparel pattern-making and grading software solution, now fully-integrated with 3D prototyping technology developed by Lectra. Modaris V7 combines the best of pattern-making, draping, and sampling all in one seamless digital process where 2D patterns can be drafted and then seen in 3D right away. Utilizing design files created in Kaledo, specified fabrics can be viewed in 3D and other onscreen adjustments can be directly applied to the flat pattern while modifications are visible in real time, in both flat and 3D modes. This interactive process significantly reduces prototyping costs and development time while giving companies the control and flexibility they need to make decisions as quickly as possible and stay ahead of the market. Modaris and its 3D Technology can not only reduce the number of physical samples by half, it is also valuable during the decision-making stage when choosing whether a product goes into production.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn more about Diamino®, Lectra’s marker-making solution which produces automatically generated markers that respect all fabric and garment constraints from the simplest to the most complex shapes, as well as, experience Lectra’s high performance Alys® inkjet plotter that prints patterns and markers quickly and accurately, to round out the production process.
