Tukatech Debuts Two New CAD Software Programs


Tukatech is providing two CAD solutions to fashion students in Germany.

The fashion technology solutions supplier has introduced two software programs—pattern making grading and marker software TukaCad and 3-D fashion design and development software Tuka3D—at Hochschule Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences, Europe’s largest clothing and textile education center.

“Tukatech offers one of the most powerful CAD solutions on the market. Not only do they offer an incomparably easy to handle 2-D tool with all relevant functions for pattern making, grading, and marker making (TukaCad), but they also offer a 3-D virtual product development tool to check fit and design directly on customized avatars (Tuka3D),” Dr. Michael Ernst, one of the university’s lead coordinators of the new Tukatech systems, said.

Ernst also spoke about how TukaCad and Tuka3D are helpful tools for teaching and international fashion design communication.

“By assigning fabric characteristics and monitoring drape while the model is both static and in motion—stakeholders from all over the world can communicate and discuss results quickly and easily. Both TukaCad and Tuka3D have both proved to be easy to work and lecture with,” he said.

Previously, the university didn’t have access to Tukatech’s innovative technology in its 2-D or 3-D CAD applications portfolio and virtual laboratory research (VirLab). Now, students may access Tukatech’s programs with affordable licenses and free manuals.

“Tukatech is committed to providing educational institutes with the resources to develop a highly skilled workforce for the future,” Tukatech director Sonia Chhabra said. “We are pleased to welcome Niederrhein University as a customer in Germany, and we look forward to adding value in the European market.”
