CAD is a practical and
affordable pattern making software system.
an innovative approach to pattern making provided in
an integrated suite of software which includes Pattern
Design, Grading, Detailing, Marker Layout and a
fully featured CAD drafting system . It is quick,
powerful and accurate - yet provides the flexibility to
match your unique requirements at an affordable price -
all in one software package.
- Fully featured CAD tools to
enable you to create/modify patterns to
match your unique requirements. It works
well for all pattern making needs - from
lingerie to swim wear, sports, casual,
uniforms, formal, bridal, tailored, even
baby clothes, dolls, bags and furniture.
approach to grading that Fashion CAD has
taken is to "re-think" in
computer terms the way, and why grading
is done. For a complex curve for example
you enter a measurement distance between
it's end points and Fashion CAD , working
by direction, distance and shape, will
grade it to the correct size with the
same shape - you do not need to work out
what happens at each point on the curve.
- You can grade an individual size or a
complete range of sizes in seconds. .
- Created sizes will fit to your
measurements - as in made-to-measure
garments. Adjacent pattern edges will
match lengths so there will be no
puckering when making up and the finished
garment will look more professional.
- Work in imperial or metric on a
standard PC computer running any
MicroSoft Windows software ('95 to XP) or
Powermac G4/G5 with VirtualPC - see FAQ
- All you need is Fashion CAD, a PC, a
digital camera and a printer/plotter -
ideal for home based or commercial
"The ability to customize my patterns to
suit each client, and not just use a standard pattern for
is crucial for
my industry and has given me the competitive edge I need.
" - just one of the comments on USERS
If you understand the requirements of making up
in different fabrics,
and - know the fundamentals of pattern
and - are
frustrated with doing it manually.
Then - you will love Fashion CAD.
Ease of use
When you purchase Fashion CAD you get a series of tutorials originally
developed in conjunction with The School Of The
Future - a centre for teachers to learn how to use the
technology that they later need to teach to their pupils.
These original tutorials have been added to and extended and
are supplied in the FashionCAD_Basics document which
provides over 20 tutorial exercises starting with simple
1 minute tasks to a more complex 25 minute assignment.
Most have a "fun" component to maintain
interest. Following this is the FashionCAD_Tutorial
document, which goes through a complete pattern design,
grading, detailing and layout process.
If you can use a PC and will complete all the
tutorials diligently then the combination of these two
documents will provide the basis for you to become
proficient in the use of Fashion CAD. .
FashionCAD is a productivity "tool"
to use - with you as the craftsman.
