EFI Releases Latest Version of Optitex 2D/3D CAD Platform
Electronics For Imaging Inc. (EFI; Fremont, CA) has announced the newest version of the EFI™ Optitex® 2D/3D CAD platform, an end-to-end digital solution.
The new software version delivers enhancements to Optitex’s end-to-end solution capabilities for fashion, apparel and textile, including a new Print & Cut solution that enables printing of all garment patterns on a single roll.
