Electronics For Imaging (EFI) has released the newest version of the EFI Optitex 2D/3D CAD platform, creating a more powerful end-to-end digital solution. The new software version delivers key enhancements to Optitex’s industry-leading end-to-end solution capabilities for fashion, apparel and textile, including a new Print & Cut solution that enables printing of all garment patterns on a single roll.

The new software version release is making its worldwide debut at Texprocess 2019, in Frankfurt, Germany, 14-17 May, in Hall 4, Stand B41.

“In order to respond to the fast pace of fashion and changing buying behaviors today, implementing end-to-end digital workflows is no longer a nice-to-have; it is survival. With this new Optitex release, full design-to-production preparation can be automated, enabling customers to focus on creativity, to quicken execution, and allow for the customization required in today’s demanding market,” said Amir Lehr, general manager, EFI Optitex.

EFI Optitex technology addresses retailers’ and brands’ urgent need to bring new products to market faster than ever before. It offers features such as advanced automation tools, including true-to-life fabric simulation, cross-size simulation and multi-colorway-multi-angle rendering; new power tools to simplify complex stitching; improved grading; ease of design for bags and pockets; an expanded library of 150 commonly used fabrics; an all-in-one avatar solution; and an improved user interface.

The new Optitex version’s Print & Cut solution for complete garment printing on a single roll enables significant savings in fabric roll inventory, with typically 15%-40% greater efficiency compared to traditional methods.

Fashion and apparel manufacturers also benefit from an improved nesting algorithm that increases fabric utilization by up to 4%.

The new release also enables custom views of designs for consistent and adaptable 3D sample displays for product catalogs and design review meetings, minimizing the need for physical samples and costly photo shoots across the design and production workflow.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
