Sample Development


It is essential that samples should be innovative and come with optimum quality. Eton’s team of experienced sampling engineers work in a dedicated facility to make accurate and complete samples. Buyers place their orders only after they are satisfied with the quality of the samples, so by the time we reach this stage our customers must know what they are getting.

 

At Eton we utilize the very latest in garment software technology to enhance the service we can provide to our customers.

Optitex is a leading provider of 3D Virtual Prototyping & 2D CAD/CAM software solutions for the apparel, industrial fabrics and upholstery industries.

Optitex enables us to significantly lower costs, quicken time to market, and become more competitive.

3D Simulation offers the user a suite of tools that will simulate all pre-production activities including stitching, fitting, visualization, texture and color variation. This can also be used as a communication tool between retailer, subcontractor, designer, pattern maker, manufacturer, costing and marketing departments. It allows the visualization of any pattern modifications instantly in 3D, based on accurate CAD patterns and real fabric characteristics.

The 3D simulation module is very helpful when you need confirmation from a client regarding fitting or measurement problems. You can send 3D images of the garment with the fitting and measurement problems and also another sample view with the suggested measurement change incorporated as per your pattern master or the technician for faster confirmations from the buying house or buyer instead of actually sending the garment or query for revised spec sheet, as it is a very time consuming process. Presenting any problem with pictures makes it easier to decipher the problem compared to verbally explaining the same. They say a picture is worth a thousand words!

Using 3D simulation software can reduce product development time and the cost involved in multiple iterations of sample garment production.

The highly detailed parametric mannequin usually has numerous precise adjustable body measurements, including several posture positions that can be saved for multiple usage – buyer wise or segment wise, size wise etc. Users can create their own specific base size mannequins, saving a great amount of time during fittings.
