Introduction to AccuMark, Pattern Design, and Product Data Management provides step-by-step instructions to Gerber Technology’s in-demand software programs. AccuMark, used to copy patterns into the computer, is covered from the basics of data storage and retrieval to the complexities of digitization. The Pattern Design section details the sizing and measuring, point and notch, line, and piece functions necessary to translate creativity into pattern reality. Rounding out the book are instructions in Product Data Management (PDM), including design and cost specifications. Together, these three computer aided design (CAD) programs are the industry standard. This clear, user-friendly book is the companion tool students need to master them, and to maximize their technological savvy in today’s dynamic fashion industry.

    Profs. Virginia Hancken Elsasser & Julia Sharp

    This has to be a phenominal textbook. I studied under both professors at Centenary College, Hackettstown, N.J. Their savvy for delivering educational information to the student is uncanny.

    My developement as a custom knitwear designer was definately enhanced by these two professionals. The hutzpa to develope my own design company, err-fections, was a reflection of my educational association with these fine educators.

    Buy their book and your dreams will take on a whole new direction!
