OptiTex is set to release its Fabric Testing Utility (FTU), which the company reports will enhance the OptiTex system's ability to recreate the dynamics of fabric movement on fully adjustable, lifelike virtual mannequins.
The FTU is a lightweight, briefcase-sized device that accurately measures the four principal types of fabric strain: bend, stretch, shear and friction. The machine has an automated repeat function to validate the measurements.
The product is designed to offer quick ROI, decreased time to market and elimination of fabric waste.
