Virtual sampling

Virtual prototyping and 3D simulation is widely regarded as the way forward for dramatically improving the entire development process.

Programs such as Optitex 3D runway Designer can virtually analyse fabric behaviour and drape, develop patterns, design garments, create samples, analyse fit, make alterations and assess the garment for fit, movement and drape via avatar animation, while enabling video fit reviews with partners across the globe.
