(Filed Under Technology News). OpiTex, a developer of user-friendly 2D and 3D CAD solutions for all cut-fabric and fashion-related industries, has introduced new features to their signature 3D avatar Adam, which will help designers significantly save time, and more importantly, costs.

New refined features of the Adam avatar include dynamic shoulder pads intended to fill in and create varied slopes for designs, as well as supplementary poses for accurate fitting. “OpiTex’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,” said the company.

In addition, the company has also announced the launch of Tim, a ten-year-old avatar who has the potential to grow up to 18 years old.

The two avatars “provide clothing designers with a significant advantage in the male fashion market, enabling a garment to be reviewed, refined and measured before the first piece is ever cut,” said the company. “Designers can now stage a virtual fashion show for potential investors, without having to create samples of the actual line, saving significant upfront costs.”

The Tim avatar stands at 139cm (about 4’5”) and he 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.”
