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!'
