Everything, done with one click. Capture of model’s image, automatic extraction and exporting to CAD systems. Exeptional simplicity, extraordinary speed and maximum combatility with Lectra, Gerber, Assyst, Investronica, Gemini formats.
Capture the image
Don’t waste time placing the patterns on a special digitizing surface, fixing them with adhesive tape or other time-wasting methods. Just clean-up a bit your normal working table, leave the patterns there and go to computer. ONE simple click, and the camera automatically captures the picture and transfers it to the computer. The image is automatically processed and the patterns are extracted in just few seconds. A smart and simple calibration procedure is necessary only one time when you first install the system, offering a comfortable precision of less than 0.7 mm.
Control and Edit
Quick and easy results inspection of the automatic digitizer using the Contour Play function. Measure distances and perimetral contour, check and adjust the internal elements or the shape of the curves if necessary, add or delete any element, input the piece name, all in one single window. Done! Easy to use zoom and navigate functions and the special magnifier viewer make your activity easy and efficient.
Save the patterns
Save the patterns directly in the native format of your CAD system. It does not matter what CAD system you use, the photo digitizer is compatible with it (see the list below). The system will remember the saved settings (location, format, etc), so you can have the patterns available directly in your CAD system with one simple click.
WHAT CAD SYSTEMS ARE COMPATIBLE WITH PHOTO DIGITIZER?
The photo digitizer can save the patterns in the native original format of Lectra, Gerber, Investronica, Assyst, Gemini .The patterns can also be exported for any other application using the standard dxf aama format, it was also tested with FK, TetraCad, Optitex, Wearcad, Konsan, Tukatech, PolyPattern, Richpeace, Novocut, Vetigraph, Consult+, Astor, AGMS, Julivi, Moda 01 and others.
HOW CAN YOU INSTALL THE PHOTO-DIGITIZER?
The photo digitizer system can be setup in various configurations, depending on the arrangement of your office. The easiest way is to use your normal working table as digitizing surface. This solution saves a lot of time because you don’t have to fix the patterns at all, you just leave it on the table and digitize it. For this solution the camera can be fixed directly on the room ceiling, or using a normal camera stand. You can also use the wall as digitizing surface if you don’t have table available, and the camera can be placed on a normal stand. A scanner can also be used for special technical high precision applications.
WHAT ELEMENTS OF PATTERNS WILL BE EXTRACTED AUTOMATICALLY?
The photo digitizer can automatically extract the pattern contour, using precise Bezier curves, can identify corners and mark them as reference points, can identify different type of notches (marked or cut), internal points and internal lines. By convention, the longest internal line found will be declared as grain axis. When the pattern is created inside the office, it is useful to respect some standard marking procedures avoiding any manual adjustment of the digitizing results.
