Design & Product Development

With Lectra’s virtual prototyping and costing software solution, you can explore the feasibility of new styles, new materials, and integrating new functions without creating physical prototypes.

Ultra-realistic 3D virtual prototypes can be shared amongst different teams, in different locations. Technical specifications and cutting plans are automatically generated and updated when changes are made to the original design.

Accurate forecasting of material use and evaluation of the profitability of a design mean you won’t be faced with unpleasant costs later in the process.
