Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials-fabrics, leather, technical textiles and composite materials-is pleased to announce that Politecnico di Milano will incorporate DesignConcept, Lectra's design and product development software, and Diamino®, its marker-making software, into the school's curriculum. Politecnico's commitment to research and innovative design, which has enabled it to become one of Europe's top architecture, design and engineering universities, made Lectra the natural choice to ensure that students and researchers have access to the latest in design tools and techniques.

Thanks to Lectra, students in Politecnico's master's degree program in yacht design will develop a thorough understanding of the technical and artistic elements of styling pleasure-craft interiors and management of complex reinforcement materials used during production. DesignConcept is a comprehensive product development solution, covering the entire process from 2D and 3D design through prototyping to development and manufacturing. "DesignConcept will be a valuable addition to our training program because it enables students to design and generate photorealistic renderings of marine interior furniture, from the wooden structure to the upholstered cover, and quickly modify them.

The ability to optimize the aesthetics, feasibility and production costs on-screen is a powerful learning tool," says Professor Andrea Ratti. "Working with Lectra's solutions is also a strategic asset for our students. Few industry professionals have experience working with software that manages both the textile and structural development of marine furniture, so these skills give our students a clear advantage on the labor market," concludes Professor Ratti. "We are honored to work with a renowned university like Politecnico di Milano. We are certain that, with the combination of Politecnico's first-class teaching methods and our advanced design solutions for upholstered interiors, students will gain the most relevant skills and knowledge for success in today's yacht building industry," says Céline Choussy Bedouet, Marketing Director for Automotive and Furniture, Lectra.
