OptiTex Unveils a New Technology for Flattening Of Three-Dimensional Objects
PETACH TIKVA, Israel, June 26 - OptiTex, a leading provider of software for the fashion and textile industries, today announced that it has developed a new technology, which enables the flattening of three-dimensional objects. The technology is applicable to a broad range of industries and applications, including textile and manufacturing, car seats for the automotive industry, aeronautics, filmmaking, computer gaming and more.
OptiTex's new technology enables on-screen transformation of three-dimensional objects' surface into two-dimensional patterns that make up the upholstered object. Currently, the traditional way of upholstering car seats in the automotive industry is achieved mainly by manual techniques that involve the use of a piece of fabric or paper and a chalk or pen to trace the segments off the actual seat.
The new technology allows the user to delineate the target areas of the object on screen and then perform an accurate and fast calculation of the two-dimensional shapes needed for production.
"The new technology strengthens our competitive edge by providing production-supporting solutions to the textile industry and for other related applications and industries," said Ran Machtinger, CEO of OptiTex. "The development process has been completed and this technology is now being implemented into our future products," he added.
