TUKATECH
LAUNCHES APPLICATIONS THAT WILL
CHANGE THE DESIGN COMMUNITY 
Cloud-based product development is poised to
simplify fashion design and development.
 
 
 
 
At Texprocess in Frankfurt, Germany, Tukatech, Inc. launched TUKA3D Designer Edition, a suite of patent-pending applications and processes to eliminate sketching, and design misinterpretations.  The entire supply chain will be able to collaborate and communicate design ideas at fraction of time and cost, giving key players in the design process special digital tools.

TUKA3D Designer Edition gives designers the independence to show their concepts virtually, without the need to touch a pattern. Sketchbook good-bye! This is virtual garment building. Mix and match pieces with ease, no pattern-making required!


TUKAstudio Used in conjunction with your favorite graphic design software, TUKAstudio is a suite of applications for print development. Create and preview repeat pattern options, colorway variations, and separate colors for print screens.  Assess print repeats and placements in true scale on a real garment body. Create yarn-dye weave patterns; preview on a flat, or on a virtual garment. See your print come to life on knit fabric. Present these visuals in a design meeting, use them in a tech pack, or send them directly to a vendor as a reference.


Adobe Illustrator Plug-In - Designers and Production Executives can fill actual graded patterns with the exact print placement they wish. Tukatech’s Plug-in sends those graded patterns to TUKAmark, which configures the pattern pieces into the most efficient layout, saving cost on inventory and fabric utilization.


TUKAcloud - a web-based digital sample room that lets designers and merchandisers collaborate more efficiently with vendors and manufacturers. This application houses data to contain all information for a developed style on a common platform.


Connect and share data confidently knowing that your intellectual property is protected. Collaborate from anywhere in the world, with flexible internal and external team building.


The new TUKA3D Designer Edition adds to the continuing success of TUKAcad for pattern-making, grading, and marker-making, sample-making. Examine Tukatech’s broad range of virtual product development technologies by emailing tukateam@tukatech.com
