Greetings from SHIMA SEIKI!

We are pleased to announce a new series of webinars for our popular SDS-ONE APEX series design system!
In this series of 6 webinars, we will cover a wide range of topics such as
how to use APEX, how to start a virtual sampling project, how to link with production,
and how to use APEX for applications other than knitwear.

In this seminar, the first in the series, we will introduce all the useful functions that are indispensable
for knitwear design, including basic pattern/silhouette creation, search for similar patterns using AI technology,
and instant conversion of designs to Jacquard, with real-time operation.

Those who participate in the webinar and answer the questionnaire will receive as a bonus,
links for watching the webinar archives and downloading PDF documents.

    • you are interested in using APEX.
    • you are facing technical and workflow issues while using APEX.
Freelance designers and students are welcome!



The SDS-ONE APEX series allows you to plan and design, evaluate colorways, create realistic fabric simulations, and even create 3D virtual samples.
It eliminates waste from the fashion supply chain and contributes to sustainability.
In addition to the all-in-one design system, we also offer APEXFiz, a subscription-based design software that can be customized according to your needs.
