Tukatech unveils TUKA APM! The fully automated pattern making and grading software is an add-on module within TUKAcad. The software is easy to use and person of any skill level can complete a graded pattern in seconds.
Using the software, apparel manufacturers will be able to generate a 2D CAD pattern for measurements, including grade rules.
Also, they will be able to quickly develop first pattern and have a better idea of garment cost at the beginning of the design process.
Seamlessly integrated with TUKA 3D, the technology can generate 3D samples and lead to more informed decision early in the design process. Designing team using the first pattern can use this application to make showroom samples for developing new styles and get more productivity from less people.
“Every day we have to develop and grade patterns just to create a costing marker for quotations for brands and retailers. This automated system does the work that generally involves 8-10 people and gives us the result much quicker as well,” said, Arshad Sattar, Managing Director for Timex and Fergasam Group in Sri Lanka.
TUKA APM is available as an add-on-module to TUKAcad via cloud-based subscription. In TUKAcad, digital pattern makers select from a library of T-shirts, trousers, polos, dresses and other apparel products for men, women and children.
For any of these silhouettes, the pattern maker gives a value for each point of measure as indicated on a visual guide. Pattern makers of any skill level can easily create a first pattern from scratch, and even specify values to instantly apply grading for larger and smaller sizes, according to Tukatech.
