OptiTex Advances CAD Avatar Technology for Fashion Industry

OptiTex has introduced new features for its signature 3D dimensional avatar, "Adam," and announced it is introducing "Tim," a ten-year-old avatar that has the potential to grow to age 18. The Adam and Tim avatars, for the male fashion market, enable a garment to be reviewed, refined and measured before the first piece is ever cut, according to Optitex. Designers can now stage a virtual fashion show for potential investors, without having to create samples of the actual line, saving significant upfront costs.

Developers at OptiTex have refined the Adam avatar by introducing "dynamic shoulder pads" to fill in and create varied slopes for designs, as well as supplementary poses for accurate fitting. OptiTex's enhanced Morphs Dialog, which offers choices such as muscle tone definition, belly shape and numerous postures, now supports the ability to manage props such as shoes and socks in 3D view.

The advanced boy avatar, Tim, begins as a 10-year-old standing at 139 cm. Tim is a parametric avatar that can be modified to change his size and dimensions of one or more body parts at the same time. Tim's life-like posture allows designers to cut down on the time invested in planning and production, thus significantly reducing customer costs.
