TOLLAND, CONN., USA, April 24, 2018 – Transformation in the fashion industry from physical to digital processes is happening quicker as consumers’ demands continue to increase. “This is an exciting time for fashion — and a demanding one,” said Mary McFadden, executive director of CAD for Gerber Technology. “With faster fashion cycles, brands and manufacturers need to digitize their processes to stay competitive and the new version of the AccuMark Platform allows a fully integrated design workflow that translates to the manufacturing equipment.”
The AccuMark 11 Platform allows companies to embrace their digital reality – giving them tools from design, grading, marker making, 3D simulation to production – allowing efficiency throughout the entire workflow.
Software advancements include:
AccuMark 2D – more than 259 new features including digital print file creation that is automated with batch processing. Enhancements in Version 11 allow AccuMark users to customize and scale image placement and save patterns in full scale PDF formats. Version 11 also supports increased image sizes, notch types in digital print files and longer marker lengths.
AccuMark 3D – version 11 includes the integration of the Avametric fabric simulation engine which not only enhances the realism of fabric thickness and draping it also connects 3D for design with e-Commerce for virtual try on leading to measurably higher shopper conversion rates. A new library of avatars has also been added that includes extended sizes for women up to U.S. size 24 and men up to U.S. size 58.
AccuPlan™ – V11 continues to expand on integrating the manufacturing workflow from ERP order to finished product. With AccuPlan V11, users can now customize a work order containing the elements that are needed to import work orders from their ERP system. AccuMark, AccuNest™ and AccuPlan together with equipment from Gerber allow for end-to-end management of production orders via integrated cut tickets, and customers can view production efficiency data via GERBERconnect™.
“Whether you are upgrading your existing AccuMark or purchasing a completely new system, Version 11 of the AccuMark Platform will enhance design throughput,” continued McFadden. “Capabilities in digital printing and 3D for fast fashion cycles will help companies stay on trend by delivering new lines to consumers rapidly.”
The AccuMark Platform includes a family of products designed to help companies unleash creative vision and embrace their digital reality. The software is the gold standard for intelligent pattern design, grading, marker making and production planning. It helps increase productivity and accelerate time to market.
