Texprocess 2017: Gemini CAD Systems launched the brand-new Pattern Designer X17 and Shaped Textile Digital Printing solution

Attending Texprocess 2017, the leading international trade fair for processing textile and flexible materials, has been very rewarding for Gemini CAD Systems. We had the perfect opportunity to present some of our latest products. The stars of the show were the brand-new Pattern Designer X17 and the Shaped Textile Digital Printing solution, along with the VisionCUT system.
Pattern Designer X17 has stirred up a lot of interest due to its many innovative features. Among them, the most appealing new modules and functionalities were: Linked Pieces, Folds Editor and Style Selector. For instance, Style Selector is a new approach to enabling customers to choose different options for a product and to create their own configuration (whether it is a made-to-measure shirt or a sofa set). Until now, designers had to develop variants of models (styles or designs) in their CAD applications.

Gemini’s approach is quite different: instead of storing hundreds of variants, the CAD projects will contain the list of options (Questions to ask), answers (possible alternatives to choose from) and actions (things to do on the model if an answer is chosen). This kind of ingenious solutions, along with significant improvements of our existing CAD features, establish Pattern Designer X17 as one of the leading CAD systems in the textile industry.

The Gemini Shaped Textile Digital Printing solution was another success for us. The innovation brought by this technology for the digital printing industry was welcomed by the visitors of our booth. The ability of unifying the graphical design and the pattern design environments, the maximizing of the printer’s productivity and the extraordinary precision of the cutting and collecting, by using the VisionCUT and Cutter Collecting Wizard systems, were proven by live demonstrations. The complete automation of the workflow, the economy in fabrics, paper, ink and the adaptation for just-in-time production and mass-customization were received with excitement.

After four successful and intense days in Frankfurt, and many meetings with our international distributors and customers, we can say that Texprocess 2017 was the most consistent participation at an international fair in the history of our company. Attendees were particularly impressed with our completely new or heavily improved features of our technology and this confirms our commitment to meet the real challenges of the industry.
