PAD Utilities handle separately each of the pattern making processes. Digitizer Manager helps to convert the archived patterns faster for better organizing. It includes 4 big managers: PAD Digitizer Manager, PAD Plot Manager, PAD Nesting Manager and PAD License Manager.
The Digitizer Manager can convert the patterns into digital format. There are 3 ways to do this.
Using the PAD Digitizer to input the manually drawn patterns and convert them into digital format.
The digitized samples of notches, seam allowances, punch hole, stripes of fabrics will be immediately displayed at the operation zone.
Taking the images of patterns by digital camera (Demonstration of setting is as the picture on the right).
The shapes of patterns or the measurements of images are directly stored in the database, and converted into digital format.
At anywhere, you may take the images of patterns by camera or smartphone at any time, download from the web or screenshots of pattern picture.
All can be directly input into a computer and then converted into digital format.
It can be used to receive and manage pattern/marker plotting tasks.
Users can receive, through the Plot Manager, files transmitted via network.
These files may be pattern files or marker files.
It can schedule the plotting order and can perform other programs simultaneously as well, without having to wait for the plotting jobs.
The software can support plotter drivers such as Gerber, Lectra, HPGL, etc., and can also modify the plotting settings of individual marker diagrams.
It can receive and manage the nesting tasks sent by the nesting software to effectively complete automatic nesting.
The whole process ranging from receiving, processing and completing a nesting task to sending the nesting results to you will not obstruct you from working on other jobs with the computer.
It can support multiple nesting design pieces, hence reducing investment costs substantially.
It can schedule nesting tasks based on the time of receiving automatic nesting tasks.
It can submit a batch of nesting tasks at night and get results in the morning next day to improve work efficiency substantially.
It manages the right of use and the status of a license, such as which machine is using it.
Corporate can effectively manage all the purchased PAD licenses.
