Gemini CAD Systems and ExactFlat Announce Partnership Streamlining Pattern Development by Interconnecting the 3D to 2D Workflow

Gemini CAD Systems and ExactFlat, today announce the forthcoming availability of a bundled solution to solve the productivity improvement needs of manufacturers of soft goods. The solution interconnects 3D to 2D pattern and graphic flattening capabilities with the advanced 2D pattern development tools needed to create compelling, profitable products.

The output of ExactFlat’s leading 3D to 2D pattern and graphic flattening environment is now fully compatible with Gemini CAD’s suite of advanced 2D design and nesting capabilities, as well as with Gemini CAD’s innovative technologies for leather or for digital printed goods. Customers will be able to move to an integrated workflow from design to cut.

A seismic shift is underway for manufacturers of apparel, furniture, and other soft goods. Modern interconnected digital processes are replacing the unprofitable manual processes everywhere, to save time and costs, positioning manufacturers for success in cutthroat competitive markets.

The new bundled solution from Gemini and ExactFlat is a seamless integration between two advanced technologies, to cover the entire manufacturing process, from 3D designs to 2D development. It helps manufacturers make the transition to a 100% digital workflow with confidence. This is the best way to address challenges like mass customization, just-in-time production, or meeting the needs of Industry 4.0.
Furniture, inflatables, apparel and other industrial products made from soft materials like textiles, leather and composites can now be made in far less time, with far less effort.

Traian Luca, CEO and co-founder of Gemini CAD Systems commented, “At Gemini CAD Systems, we are always enthusiastic to discover complementary technologies which can enhance the contribution of our solutions to the value chain in industries we serve. ExactFlat’s 3D to 2D flattening technology provides our customers in upholstery and inflatables with a fast, accurate solution to generate 2D patterns from objects designed in 3D CAD and integrates seamlessly with Gemini AutomART digital printing technology and Gemini Pattern Designer X17. We are committed to continue R&D efforts to create pragmatic and innovative solutions with immediate and consistent results in automating design and manufacturing processes.”

Mark Jewell, founder of ExactFlat noted that “the transformation to digital patterning gives product designers and manufacturers the power to reshape their entire business model to support better customer relationships and higher profit goals.” Mr. Jewell further commented that time pressured industries are being forced to customize their products in ways that can only be accomplished through digital processes. ExactFlat and Gemini CAD Systems now offer a complete digital solution to meet this need.
