2D DCM Enables Parametric Garment Sizing in the My Label Application from OptiTex for Home-based Fashion Designers

Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of Siemens Industry Sector and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, and OptiTex Limited of Israel, a leader in 2D and 3D CAD/CAM fashion and textile design software, today announced the use of the D‑Cubed
2D Dimensional Constraint Manager (2D DCM) parametric solver by OptiTex in the My Label application for home-based fashion designers. My Label is licensed by OptiTex to their partner Bernina International for shipping with Bernina's sewing machines.

The 2D DCM is the world's most established solution for increasing design productivity by solving geometric dimensions and constraints. It is licensed to the developers of software applications that are seeking to increase innovation with minimal cost, risk and time to market.

Bernina's My Label is one of the world's first advanced 3D product offerings for home‑based garment designers. It is based on technology from OptiTex's Modulate, the established 2D DCM-based interactive, parametric software application for the design of made-to-measure garment patterns. My Label enables Bernina's home-based sewing machine customers to benefit from some of the same tools used in professional fashion design houses. Bernina is the largest privately held sewing machine company.


The 2D DCM empowers users of Modulate and My Label to take a parametrically defined garment pattern and automatically create the equivalent article in many different sizes, said Ran Machtinger, president and CEO of OptiTex. Without the 2D DCM, the development cost and time-scale for deploying such a capability in these applications was prohibitive.


The PLM Components product portfolio is rapidly expanding into new markets
, said Bruce Feldt, vice president of Open Tools for Siemens PLM Software.
OptiTex has taken a pioneering role in the application of 2D DCM-based parametric techniques in the garment design industry and we are pleased to support their drive into new markets.
