Kommentare: Ease of use. Flexible.

Vorteile: PatternSmith is very easy to use. It has powerful tools in the editor mode that can be easily set up for your own specifications. We also export all of programs as .nc files that can be used for a variety of cutting machines. It also incorporates a material library much like other more expensive software platforms. When used in conjunction with AutoMetrix cutting tables the result is smooth, fast cutting with the ability to change the nesting area as needed for specialty fabrics and recuts. I would recommend Patternsmith to anyone who does high volume programming with multiple machine formats.

Nachteile: I would like to see some dimensioning capabilities in future releases. There are also problems associated with the back button and the software locking up. This usually occurs when there are a lot of radiuses or complex math equations working in the background. Saving to polylines often results in broken pieces such as a square having only three sides after saving it, At this time users are not able to set up a que for programs. They need to load each program individually for cutting.

Kommentare: It has been good. Like all programs it takes a while to get good at it. I do not run the cutting machine, but the people that do have given me very good feedback on what sort of ways I should do the designs. What we should write in the seam allowances and that sort of thing.

Vorteile: THe way it interfaces with te cutting machine.. The way you can use measure poly lines.

Nachteile: I Also design with Solid works, so when I use both I get a very powerfull combination. yet patternsmith can do things in 2D that solid works can not, and of course we can unfold products in solid works, and export the DXF files. I really have no complaints except that it has taken me a long time to learn how to use both. Years ago, if I was on the road, and I needed to work on patternsmith, the program would not let me use it because it would recognize a different IP adress or something like that. We went bac to 2005, 7.6 and everything worked out fine. We continue to use 2005 7.6 today.

Good product, easier to use in new version, but no language choice

Vorteile: new design easier to understand, user friendly

Nachteile: parametric files don't exist, can't use a part in many markers and then change one and auto updates on next open in another marker. also not possible to put software in french.

Hi Jonathan - thanks for your feedback! Glad to see you guys are enjoying the new version.

We'll continue to work to make the system more flexible for all the different use cases, but the primary reason we don't have parametric type patterns as a standard is because of how it affects each separate marker. If you change a pattern, it's unlikely that the nested marker can remain the same without running into overlap issues.

We DO have another product, Templates, that is a powerful plugin for PatternSmith allowing parametric pattern templates to be built, and then resized patterns are generated and ready for nesting. If you think that might be of interest, please let us know and we can set up a demo!

We are also working to support more languages in the future - we'll make sure French is on the list.

Happy with the overall experience but would love more features, shortcuts, & customization.

Kommentare: The company I am currently with has been using this software for quite a while and I understand that it is a very important piece to our business. I am happy to see a new update is coming out and would love to see the what's new.

Vorteile: I enjoy the short learning curve and ease of use the most.I have taught others on how to use it and they quickly picked it up. The manual is also very informative, and the tool tips are a good touch.

Nachteile: I would like it more if there were more ways to customize and set automatized features. It would also be great if the user can upload a photo and has it be seen through the "pattern window".

Hi Dexter - thanks for the feedback!

Wanted to let you know that, if I understand your request correctly, PatternSmith version 8 has a new feature that lets you place a picture as a background in the pattern editor and scale it. Then, a pattern can be drafted over that background quite easily!

If you guys are interested in giving it a try, head over to http://www.autometrix.com/patternsmith/trial and download a 30 day trial, then give us a call and we'll guide you through the process...

This product has sped up our production and made the process easy and simple to use.

Kommentare: The benefit of being able to quickly and easily make new tarp drawings and repeat the tarps that already have been made.

Vorteile: The operators in the back have all pick this up quickly and it has been easy to train them on. It has improved our quality and made the process much more consistent.

Nachteile: The thing that we dislike about PatternSmith is we continuously have to go through there website to get new unlock codes for the software. It is easy to do this, but it does happen more than we would like.

Thanks for taking the time to give us some feedback, Steve. We know the unlock code issues is a major frustration for those of you affected. Happy to report that PatternSmith version 8 has an improved unlock system that is proving to solve the problem - Michels is eligible for an upgrade at any point, so I'd encourage you to reach out to customer service and we'll help with the process!
