# Size Guide

Anthropometric measurements
Displaying 1-10 of 13 results.

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

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

point
sz
Apply(point,distance,angle). Length of virtual line [point1:point2].l

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

point
apply
length property
sz
.l
virtual line
Meet(point,angle,point,angle). Using variables.

Using command "meet" for placing points.

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.

How to choose 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.

Angle property of a virtual line

Referring to an angle between two points.

Curve (point,point,angle,angle)

Drafting curves.

curve
Rotate ((objects), 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.
