PatternMaker Grading Studio
Create a grading table by adding arrows to key points on your pattern pieces. The arrow indicates how that point changes from one size to the next. Put arrows on as many or as few points as you need. Then, with three clicks of the mouse, PatternMaker creates the entire nest of graded sizes. It takes just seconds—now you can be your own grading service!
- Digitizer Support
- Symbol Libraries
Grading tables also allow cut ratio settings for use in conjunction with the PatternMaker Marker Studio. If you want your markers to contain, for example, two Large sized bundles for every three Medium sized bundles, set the cut ratio for Large to 2 and the ratio for Medium to 3.
Use a digitizing tablet to “trace” paper patterns into the computer. Import your slopers to the computer—a whole drawer of tagboard slopers will easily fit on even the smallest thumb drive. Trace small-scale patterns from books or magazines, then use the “Scale” command to make them full-size.
One library of basic sewing symbols is included with PatternMaker, and with PatternMaker Grading Studio you can make your own symbols to supplement that basic library. You are not limited to sewing symbols—anything that you can draw can be saved as a symbol. Possibilities: notch marks, punch marks, company logos, copyright notices, standard collars and cuffs, and more.
