SDS-ONE APEX3

User-Friendly PGM Technology for Smooth Production Flow

SDS-ONE APEX3 is the latest apparel CAD system from Shima Seiki featuring comprehensive patternmaking, grading and marking (PGM) capability. SDS-ONE APEX3 combines a full array of expert functions with easy-to-use instinctive operation, allowing anyone-beginners and professionals alike-to take full advantage of cutting-edge CAD technology. With machine data output to various cutting machine formats including Shima Seiki's own P-CAM fabric cutting systems, SDS-ONE APEX offers smooth CAD-to-CAM workflow. Combining proprietary Shima Seiki technology with the benefits of a user-friendly environment, SDS-ONE APEX is the perfect CAD system for today's garment industry.

User-Friendly Operating Environment

User-Friendly Operating Environment

The familiar Shimatronic operating environment consists of a pressure-sensitive cordless pen and digitizer tablet as well as a trackball unit with duplicate keys for often-used functions, allowing simultaneous use of both hands for maximum productivity. In addition, ONE features such useful functions as online help, macro functions and seamless switching between patternmaking, grading and marking software programs.

A Winning Combination

A Winning Combination

At the core of SHIMA SEIKI's Total Fashion System, SDS-ONE APEX3 ensures smooth production flow to the cutting room. Shima Seiki manufacturers its own precision fabric cutting machines, the P-CAM series. A selection of cutting widths and thickness are available, ranging from high-volume multi-ply machines to single-ply machines for sampling and made-to-measure clothing applications. Together, SDS-ONE APEX and P-CAM is a winning combination that provides highly efficient apparel production.

Patternmaking

Patternmaking

With SDS-ONE APEX3's patternmaking software, high-quality pattern can be created easily. Comprehensive drawing and editing functions allow detailed control approaching that of manual patternmaking.

Grading

Grading

Correct sizing of products can be achieved with grading software. Users can choose between pitch-formula and rule-formula grading. With such high-quality grading features as line-check and automatic pitch calculation, optimum grading pitch can be worked out for each product size.

Marking

Marking

In addition to manual marking, SDSR-ONE APEX's marking software features ultra-high speed automatic marking for instant creation of markers. The software is also capable of creating markers in sequence, allowing fully automated marking of multiple jobs. Markers can be transferred to P-CAM fabric cutting machine, for efficient and accurate cutting.

3D Simulation

SDS-ONE APEX3 features 3D simulation to evaluate the product from any angle. 3D Item Database allows 3D images to be created easily especially for beginners or anyone without experience in patternmaking.

3D Model

3D Model

An original model can be created by inputting body measurements, skin color, hair color and hair style, etc. Moreover, body pose can be adjusted for a variety of presentations.

Patternmaking to 3D Fitting

Patternmaking to 3D Fitting

Once the sewing line is set, patterns created using the measurement table or PGM software can be placed around the body. Based on those measurements and fabric properties (KES), the pattern can be sewn together and draped onto the body in 3D Fitting Simulation. Fabric tension and pressure points can be displayed in color for reference in product development.

3D Mapping

3D Mapping

Scanned or simulated fabric can be mapped onto the 3D garment.

Item Coordinates

Item Coordinates

It is possible to create models with layered coordinates.
