Leading software developer, Gerber, has unveiled Accumark Version 12 platform, to meet personalisation and the need for speed challenges. This is Gerber’s first of many software releases of 2019. It’s will be a notable year for Gerber, as they deliver on a robust roadmap and work toward the opening of their NYC Innovation Center and Microfactory.
“To survive and more importantly thrive in today’s markets, fashion players need to improve their agility, speed, and connectivity. Our Version 12 AccuMark Platform release delivers on these demands from product design and development to 3D sampling through optimised production planning and manufacturing,” Mary McFadden, VP of CAD product management, Gerber said in a press release.
Version 12 of the AccuMark Platform solves the business’ need for speed and adds features to address your customers’ demands for personalisation. Its robust feature set is capable of addressing both on-demand or digital printing workflows as well as fully optimised mass production operations.
The new version 12 software includes various advancements. AccuMark 2D CAD, the industry-leading intelligent CAD pattern design, grading, and marker making application has added a vast number of new features in V12. New features are focused on simplification and giving users more control of their entire workflow with more options for personalisation and modern controls. Some key enhancements include multi-dimensional grading as an easier alternative to alterations, pattern wizard updates to simplify and shorten processes, expanded digital printing workflow capabilities, personalised reporting options and visual customisation tools.
The industry’s leading fully-integrated 2D to 3D solution, AccuMark 3D, continues to build on the integration of the industry-leading Avametric Fabric Simulation Engine added in V11. Version 12 adds support for optical and surface texture effects from Vizoo and X-Rite scanners to provide an even higher level of realism. A new live drag within a simulation allows a user to tug on a garment to help assess and control fit. Avatars with additional poses have been added to help with speed and personalisation. Finally, to enable designers to validate ideas early in the concepting stage, AccuMark now offers a hi-resolution photorealistic prototyping service improving speed and cutting weeks off a development cycle.
AccuPlan integrates seamlessly with AccuMark to optimise spread and cut planning. Version 12 of AccuPlan includes the addition of multiple fabric property features to capture selvage, shrink/stretch percentage values and major enhancements to planning and reporting features. The updates to the AccuPlan application continue to improve speed, efficiency and the optimisation of material utilisation. The new fabric property features allow for greater planning and optimised material consumption. The addition of customisations in reporting and a new production tracker report provides greater management control and visualisation into the workflow for improved agility and the ability to plan multiple purchase orders together, and accurately report on fabric consumption.
With the launch of AccuMark Platform Version 12, comprehensive online and in-person training can be secured through Gerber University. The training platform provides classes on AccuMark, 3D, pattern design, and more.
