Pattern Design Software
Optitex Pattern Design Software offers intuitive and powerful software tools designed to work with patterns at every step of your production cycle. You can draft pieces from scratch with our drafting and editing tools, digitize existing hard-copy patterns with the most advanced digitizing tools available, or even edit and finalize your existing digital patterns, all within the same easy-to-learn interface.
Best of all, the PDS interface is intuitive, easy-to-learn, and fully customizable.
Movable toolbars and dialog boxes allow each design engineer to create their own working environment. Icons and tools are organized by functionality: Tools related to drafting, editing, and measuring your patterns are all grouped together to provide quick access to the tools you use most. Hotkeys allow you to quickly access your most heavily-used functions without ever needing to access a menu.
PDS provides a full suite of features designed with all sewn products manufacturers in mind: apparel, automotive, upholstery, and composite materials. Darts, seam allowance, special corners, advanced measurement techniques, pleats, complicated curves, dimension modifications, and facings, have been specially developed to meet the needs of our customers across a wide range of product types.
