DESIGN & PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

Meet demand for increased variety and faster deliveries with efficient furniture design, product development, industrialization and pre-production processes.

TODAY’S CUSTOMERS WANT FURNITURE THAT MAKES A STATEMENT

Consumer demand for more choice, more customization, more modularity and more competitive prices means you must balance speed, cost, and creativity. To get new products to market faster requires the most efficient furniture development, industrialization and pre-production processes.

WHAT IF YOU COULD…

EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF NEW STYLES, new materials and integration of new functions without creating physical prototypes

ACCURATELY FORECAST THE COST OF MATERIALS and a design’s profitability early in the design and development process

QUICKLY DIGITIZE, OPTIMIZE, and prepare pattern pieces and production configurations, while taking into account upholstery constraints

GENERATE COMPLEX MARKERS QUICKLY, minimize fabric waste and accurately estimate fabric consumption for production planning

INTRODUCING DESIGNCONCEPT

DesignConcept transforms the way you create, develop, cost and prepare for production. With DesignConcept 3D you can identify the best designs to optimize margins while reacting quickly to demand. DesignConcept 2D then helps you prepare for production with automatically generated technical documentation and pattern fine-tuning.

See how DesignConcept software can help you shorten furniture design and development cycles, minimize waste, easily modify designs, and make accurate costing decisions at the earliest stages of your design process.

WHAT YOU’LL GAIN

ENHANCED STYLE DEVELOPMENT CAPABILITIES

- Parametric modeling of the 3D model from sketches

- 3D simulation of all upholstered furniture types, including tufting and buttoning

- Simultaneous development of models, variants and options

 

FASTER TIME TO MARKET

- Concurrent development of foam, frame and upholstery

- 3D design changes automatically transferred to 2D production-ready patterns

- Automatic generation of all technical specifications and cutting plans for frame, foam, sewing and cover, and then sent directly to pre-production teams

 

REDUCED PROTOTYPING AND MANUFACTURING COSTS

- Virtual furniture prototyping software reduces the number of physical prototypes and pattern-making iterations by up to 50%

- Costing of fabric and leather consumption, accessories and labor early in the development process

- Automatic nesting of patterns on fabric for costing and physical prototyping

 

GUARANTEED PATTERN QUALITY

- Design and trim cover feasibility simulation to increase pattern quality by taking material characteristics into account

- 2D pattern fine-tuning tool applies all shape modifications while ensuring pattern accuracy

- Definition of fabric grain lines and leather quality zones for better finished quality in automated cutting

VIRTUAL PROTOTYPING FROM A DESIGNER’S PERSPECTIVE

"Considering that it takes one to two months to make a prototype, imagine the time savings when you can alter the frame in 3D and see the results immediately - in terms of cost or cutting the wood, foam and fabric.”
