PatternElf is a new footwear plug-in for Rhino 5 developed by DES. PatternElf has two design procedures, 3-D/2-D and 2-D Only.
- Reverse-engineering for shoe lasts, meshes to NURBS.
- 3-D last flattening, halves design procedures (Merge, Length, Spring, Lasting).
- Imports ImagineElf3D files, creates 2-D halves / 2-D curves / 2-D patterns automatically.
- Drawing curves on 3-D lasts, 2-D halves or simultaneously.
- Pattern design by Pattern Engineer (same with 2-D Only design procedure).
- Designs 2-D sketch on halves.
- Creates 2-D patterns from 2-D sketches.
- Pattern design by Pattern Engineer
- Object oriented pattern design (Allowance, Stencil, Notches...)
- Object oriented pattern morph (Spring, Match, Straighten, Crease...)
- Process (History) editor.
- Exports to cutting machine. (HPGL format)
