Also on display will be the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system. Key to Shima Seiki’s Total Fashion System concept, APEX3 integrates all stages of apparel production into one workflow through comprehensive support from planning and design to production and sales promotion. With ultra-realistic product simulations, APEX3 is also capable of Virtual Sampling that minimises the costly time- and resource-consuming sample-making process.
