PAD's open architecture supports any plug-in to further enhance the functionality.
PAD Digitizer Manager
An input utility to digitize pattern pieces, tightly integrates with PAD Pattern Design for further pattern modification and treatment. You may also set up several digitizing stations to achieve higher efficiency.
- Instant on-screen digitizing, i.e. convert pattern piece images into digital format, including notches, punch holes, cuts and grain line, etc.
- Instant display of all digitized pieces on working area.
- Open platform supports any plug-in driver. (Click here for the list of supported digitizer drivers.)
PAD Plot Manager
A standalone program manages plotting in network environment, and is easily compatible with other branded plotter. It allows user to manage batch plotting efficiently while permitting continuous use of the computer.
- Manages queuing of plot files in a network environment.
- Prioritizes plotting jobs in the batch file window.
- Modifies plotting options for each individual marker.
- Connects any existing plotters. (Click here for the list of supported drivers.)
PAD AutoMark Engine
A state-of-art nesting engine, creates the most efficient and cost-effective production markers. The unique algorithm used by PAD AutoMark makes it outperforming any other nesting engine or marker software in the market.
Compared with PAD's previous nesting engine, the efficiency is improved by up to 4%. On top of that, PAD AutoMark can swiftly produce different styles of markers, handle specific fabric types such as colour shading which cannot be handled by the old PAD engine.
PAD AutoMark is a must have item for every apparel manufacturer to produce efficient markers, it helps to improve production efficiency and achieve cost saving purpose in contemporary business environment.
- Simple interface
- Material Efficiency
- Sophisticated Features
- Performs full automatic nesting for complicated fabric types, like fold & tubular fabrics, plaids & stripes, colour shaded, specific widths and contractions etc.
- Defines pieces to certain check position in plaids & stripes fabrics.
- Allows to set zone value on colour shaded markers.
- Specifies a size into the zone of colour shaded marker.
- Makes pieces “size-by-size” in step marker.
- Automatically detects and corrects overlap pieces that caused by style and size substitutions.
PAD AutoMark is powerful yet its user interface is easy to understand and simple to use.
PAD AutoMark not only produces markers faster and more efficiently than manual marker making, its speed outperforms most other software, saving time and money.
Increases marker efficiency by further 0.5% - 2% comparing with market nesting engines, reduces marker length, acheives significant fabric savings.
The most cost-effective nesting engine for its superior performance.
