SDS-ONE APEX3

SDS-ONE APEX3

Supporting high-quality circular knitted fabric simulation.

SHIMA SEIKI's SDS-ONE APEX3 can be used to design circular knit fabric patterns including stripes and jacquard patterns. It can also produce a variety of structure patterns for single-knit fabrics such as jersey and tuck patterns, as well as double-knit fabrics such as rib fabrics. Raised nap fabrics and prints can also be simulated. SDS-ONE APEX3 offers comprehensive support for everything from product planning, pattern development, colorways and fabric simulation to output of circular knit CAD bitmap data and generation of sales promotion material. It is an optimal design system for all types of knit fabrics and related products for the apparel industry, including textile converters, circular knit manufacturers, planning companies, OEM and ODM manufacturers, trade firms, yarn traders, interior designers, sporting goods manufacturers, innerwear manufacturers and sundry goods manufacturers.

Creating Patterns

Creating Patterns

Data for jacquard patterns and basic structure patterns are available, and can be combined and arranged freely. Original patterns and structures can also be drawn using the preview screen.

Creating Patterns

Photos and illustrations are converted into loops according to gauge. By taking into consideration the ratio between loop width and length, accurate knitted size can be confirmed during the planning stage. Patterns can also be edited while in repeat mode.

Special Stripe Function

Special Stripe Function

Stripe patterns can be designed by inputting stripe width in distance or number of courses, and can be displayed at life-size. For circular knitting, the number of yarn feeders are taken into account.

Colorways

Colorways

Color evaluation can be performed with colors selected from the color menu or the Pantone color guide. Colors can also be directly input from a color sample through the spectrophotometer. Auto Colorway function creates multiple colorways by sampling colors from a given image such as conceptual storyboards and scenery photos. It enables you to easily create colorway variations according to design theme and concept.

Yarn Input

Yarn Input

Actual yarn can be scanned in and registered. Twist yarn, space-dyed yarn and mélange yarn can be created as well.。

Simulation

Simulation

Realistic simulation can be performed based on yarn count and number of yarn ends. Plating, parallel yarns and reverse side of fabrics can be simulated as well.

Product Image

Product Image

Simulated or scanned fabric can be draped onto photos or illustrations of garments for checking the final product image. By inputting garment size, the fabric size is automatically adjusted for accurate evaluation.

Compatibility with Circular Knitting CAD

Compatibility with Circular Knitting CAD

Pattern/structure data can be exchanged between SDS®-ONE APEX3 and circular knitting CAD using bitmap data.

ISO9001 Certification ---SHIMA SEIKI has ISO9001 certification for Design and Manufacturing of Design Systems.
