New PDS features include a design tool and inventory module.
Version 12.3 of Optitex Pattern Design Software (PDS) includes new tools to improve the design and development workflow, as well as inventory utilization.
The new Printed Fabric Tool simplifies the accurate positioning of style pieces on printed fabric. Designers are able to see how the printed image will lie on the garment, make adjustments and immediately view the effects of every change. The changes can be made on the 2-D pattern or 3-D model, with results simultaneously displayed in both.
Roll Management is a new optional module available for Optitex CutPlan. It enables cutting room managers to integrate roll inventory data into their order cutting process to optimize utilization of inventory fabric according to user-defined priorities. Usage data from the module can be exported to a spreadsheet to update the inventory control system.
