Diamino V6 allows fabric to be visualized on costing and production markers
Lectra, the company of integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials including fabrics, leather, technical textiles and composite materials, launches an improved Design to Cost approach to product development that draws on design, pattern-making, marker-making and 3D prototyping technologies and expertise.
An integral component of Lectra’s Design to Cost approach is the new pre-costing and marker-making solution Diamino V6, which now allows fabric to be visualized on costing and production markers to help companies better anticipate and control material consumption.
During the conceptualization phase, a period in which many ideas are proposed, challenged and reworked, material consumption is often only very roughly estimated. By more tightly integrating its core product design and development technologies and allowing for a more fluid exchange of visual and technical information, Lectra’s new design aims for faster and more realistic evaluation of possible production scenarios.
In addition, non-specialist profiles like product managers, cutting room managers, research departments and product development teams can now have access to this information. Fabrics can also be visualized in the marker layout to enhance the impact of fabric choices on cost, while providing clear visual instructions on repeat placement and orientation.
Design to Cost is especially useful for companies that work with engineered prints and complex or intricate fabrics. They are able to import sketches, graphics or scanned fabrics from the design department to evaluate production scenarios before fabric is ordered, printed or cut. If changes need to be made in design to reduce costs at the production end, Diamino V6’s visual capacities make it easier to communicate across departments quickly and accurately to keep development moving forward.
