"Tukatech offers one of the most powerful CAD solution on the market."

Tukatech, Inc. proudly announces the introduction of TUKAcad, pattern making grading and marker software, and TUKA3D, 3D fashion design and development software, at Hochschule Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences, the largest European education center in textile and clothing for education and research. With a history of 100 years and over 1700 students, Niederrhein provides a wide range of Bachelor’s and Master’s programs, creating opportunities for its attendees to work in Germany and abroad.

Professor Dr. –Ing. Dipl. –Ing. Michael Ernst has been the lead coordinator in implementation of the Tukatech systems. Ernst summarizes the importance of Tukatech for the University:

“Tukatech offers one of the most powerful CAD solutions on the market. Not only do they offer an incomparably easy to handle 2D tool with all relevant functions for pattern making, grading, and marker making (TUKAcad), but they also offer a 3D virtual product development tool to check fit and design directly on customized avatars (TUKA3D). By assigning fabric characteristics and monitoring drape while the model is both static and in motion - stakeholders from all over the world can communicate and discuss results quickly and easily. Both TUKAcad and TUKA3D have both proved to be easy to work and lecture with.

Tukatech also provides dozens of help videos and manuals to all its students and customers - always available, up-to-date, and for free. What is truly exception is their support to young students (e.g. offering affordable licenses). Tukatech understands that these are the decision-makers of tomorrow in a worldwide operating industry.”

“Tukatech systems were missing in our portfolio of 2D/3D CAD applications for lecturing and also for research in our virtual laboratory (VirLab). Now we have closed this gap," Dr. Ernst added.

“Tukatech is committed to providing educational institutes with the resources to develop a highly skilled workforce for the future. Over 500 universities in 23 countries are using TUKAcad, TUKA3D and many other Tukatech systems. We are pleased to welcome Niederrhein University as a customer in Germany, and we look forward to adding value in the European market,” says Sonia Chhabra, Director of Tukatech.
