How can I define a material allowance at the edge of a cutting pattern?


Tailoring the cutting patterns is set in the cutting pattern properties. To define an individual allowance on a specific edge, proceed as follows:

  1. Open the relevant cutting pattern properties.
  2. Activate the "Allowances" option in the "General" tab.
  3. In the "Allowances" tab, activate the "Different" option above the table.
  4. Select the affected edge line in the table, activate the "Active" option and specify the allowance dimension.
  5. Confirm the change by clicking the "Apply" button.
Thus, the program adds a material strip to the selected edge after performing the flattening and considering all compensation measures.
