TUKA3D apparel virtual prototyping software expected to aid in speeding up sample development.
Los Angeles, CA – Tukatech announces another success story with the proud addition of Amrit Exports to our list of customers who use 3D prototyping to reduce time to market and increase productivity.
“We had doubled our productivity and had significant savings of fabric with TUKAcad and SMARTmark systems installed in the last six months, and since all our pattern making is now digital, we decided to graduate to the next step in automation with 3D virtual garments,” says Anand Buchasia, Founder of Amrit Exports Pvt. Ltd., the largest garment manufacturer in West Bengal, India.
“We are now looking at reducing the development time. 3D virtual samples make more sense today than ever. I love the built-in motion simulator that gives instant feedback on mistakes so we can correct and move on immediately,” added Anil Buchasia, Co- Founder-Amrit Exports and responsible for sales and marketing.
“We were the first to buy Gerber systems in Kolkata 10 years ago, and my only regret is that I lost 10 years of savings. I am really glad to have switched our systems to Tukatech,” commented Anand Buchasia.

TUKA3D, a collection of 3D software modules for design, fit, and collaboration, makes it easy for designers, pattern makers and apparel manufacturers to present style decisions, test the fit of a garment or share fit comments with others around the globe. The software converts digital (CAD) patterns into 3D meshes, then a set of fabric values for the particular swatch (such as stretch, weight, bend, etc.) is interpreted by a cloth simulation algorithm to model the pattern meshes as cloth. The user simply imports the digital pattern, places it around the 3D virtual fit model, the stitches it, then drapes on the model, a process which sews the pieces together in 3D. The 3D virtual fit model is an exact replica of the live fit model, ensuring zero tolerance between the fit of the real garment and the virtual garment.
“In fact, if your company is outsourcing your apparel manufacturing to other parts of the world, your vendors may be using TUKA3D or other Tukatech products without you even knowing it. Hundreds of brands and retailers around the world benefit from the use of TUKA3D by their vendors in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Central America, Europe and Sri Lanka,” commented Ram Sareen, CEO and Founder of Tukatech.
