Next Generation 3D Furniture Production Modeling Technology now at LTP
LTP plans a product development center aided by 3D modeling technology. We call it LTP Development Accelerator
With the implementation of our new 3D software, we will be able to turn customers’ design ideas into reality with speed, efficiency and accuracy. The 3D software will be a cornerstone in establishing a new Development Accelerator at LTP with enhanced 3D development capabilities.
According to Aurimas Šiurna, our R&D Manager, ‘’Our partners will love this software, as it will take LTP’s product development process to the next level. It will decrease the time to market and reduce prototyping and manufacturing costs.”
By eliminating the need for loop testing and shortening the sampling process, we can offer a faster time to market while fostering the development of a more sustainable design process by minimizing the number of physical samples.
From 3D design freeze, meaning when the design drawings have been approved, our goal is to build a sample in just days with a 1-loop of samples before starting the industrialization phase.
Our co-creation and engineering capabilities
The 3D software is engineered so that we will be able to take a simple design sketch or 3D rendering to design a virtual inner construction complete with frame, foam and textiles. The software will be able to guide us, indicating where adjustments need to be made before creating the physical product, thereby decreasing the extent of testing loops.
Even before creating a prototype with actual materials, we can resolve constructional issues and optimize the use of materials with the minimal amount of waste. The ability to develop foam, frame and upholstery reduces industrialization time by virtually 30%. This software is engineered to transfer 3D models and design changes to 2D ready-to-cut patterns and automatically create technical specifications and cutting plans for pre-production.
The Benefits of our 3D visualisation Software
There are numerous benefits of virtual furniture prototyping software that will help us better serve our customers:
- Enhanced co-creation
- Improved engineering and style development capabilities
- Less loop testing
- Faster time to market
- Reduced costs in prototyping
- Guaranteed pattern quality
- Enhanced customer service with realistic 3D visualisation
- A more sustainable sample production
Stay tuned for more information about our planned implementation of this amazing new 3D software. We will also keep you informed as our progressive LTP development accelerator nears completion.
LTP Group is a production partner for demanding Sport & Outdoor and Furniture brands with 11 privately owned factories across 7 countries in Europe, Asia and North America.
