Go from flat pattern to CAD (computer-aided design) — the industry way. You’ll learn to digitize your patterns, modify them, add grading then layout markers for best use of fabric. You’ll also learn how to create patterns from measurements and spec sheets. Use Optitex 15 — the same software used by Nike and many designers — and an Algotex digitizer. Set up markers for plot. Translate your Optitex files to Gerber and Lectra.
