Size Guide

Anthropometric measurements

Point(x,y). Referring to size measurements.

Placing points - the command point and several examples of pattern drafts.

sz
Point(x,y). Referring to size measurements.
Apply(point,distance,angle). Length of imaginary line [point1:point2].l

Let's change some of the point commands from the last tutorial to apply commands. We shall also use imaginary lines between two points for some of the calculations.

Apply(point,distance,angle). Length of imaginary line [point1:point2].l
Meet(point,angle,point,angle). Using variables.

Using command "meet" for placing points.

Organising your code. Using variables and comments.

Before we dive into the actual drafting, let's make some calculations and organize them so that we can easily adapt our pattern to different needs.

Choosing names for points and objects

Another idea on how you make your pattern draft more readable and easier to manage.

Redefining objects

In this lesson we shall see what happens if we define an object or a variable again.

Line (point,point)

Lesson about using lines.

Line (point,point)
Curve (point,point,angle,angle)

Drafting curves.

Curve (point,point,angle,angle)
Rotate (something, point, angle). Angle (point, point, point)

Rotate is one of the most commonly used commands in pattern drafting. In this lesson we manipulate darts with its help.
