Cowbell Posted December 31, 2004 Share Posted December 31, 2004 I'm at work, and I've been given an assignment to cut production time for our products. It is a company that makes military and frontier outfits. I just had this assignment explained to me in a rather rough manner, so let me try and explain the best I can. We have large templates (as large as 6 ft x 6ft) that guide us when we cut fabric. We take the template, trace around it on a piece of large paper, and place that paper over the fabric to cut it. This takes a pretty long time but its been working for us. Now, we want to digitize everything to save us time and fabric. This means scanning all of the templates onto the computer, and arranging all of them onto a piece of paper as close together as we can to save fabric. Now, the small templates such as hats we can scan using a simple scanner. But the larger ones are a different story. I was told hat there is some kind of pen around that could do this. Like, you trace around the template with the pen, and it appears on the computer the same size as the original template. Anyone know what I'm talking about? I've kinda seen some pens like this, but they are usualy for drawing on tablets or something... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
