Autometrix PatternSmith software gives Allied the ability to try new things with the shapes of their components: “If you are trying to design a super lightweight bike, having the freedom to design and use whatever shapes and angles we want gives us a performance advantage,” said Pickman.
With the Autometrix System, we have the ability to nest pattern pieces (using AutoNest), not only in scrap material, but also nesting the pieces within a given fabric. This way we are able to reduce our scraps to very small quantities. In many cases we are cutting at a 90-95% efficiency ratio.
It had to be easy to run - none of us are programmers, or have any CAD experience... I loaded the free trial of the PatternSmith software and started playing with dots, lines, and curves. 'Hey, this is no harder than Publisher, we can do this!'
The AutoNest program was then used to arrange all the cuts onto the cutting table surface in the most efficient manner to minimize waste. Waste was reduced to 10-20% with the Autometrix software and Radium cutting table from 40-50% when hand cut.
For every drawing that is created in this company, we use PatternSmith and we export dxf files, which is very easily done in the software, to drive the cutting machine.
