Introduction to Digital Pattern Cutting for Production Short Course

Course description

The course will provide an overview of how computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing can be applied to the traditional skills of pattern cutting, grading, lay planning and fashion design. You'll learn to use various CAD/CAM software packages which include Adobe Illustrator, Gerber and Optitex 3D.

The course will start with teaching you how to use Adobe Illustrator for specification sheets and technical drawing skills for a garment and then move onto using Gerber for pattern development as well as creating a pattern to industry standards for a garment.

The course will also show you how to use Gerber for pattern grading as well as layplanning and costing.

The course also will give you the opportunity to practice using Optitex 3D for sewing and fitting a garment on to a virtual model
