Rebecca Taylor Pattern Digitizing Case Study

Rebecca Taylor is a womenswear brand based in New York City. The brand is inspired by beauty in the everyday with an emphasis on signature prints, dimensional texture and modern nostalgia, the collection cultivates a look of romantic fragility with a sophisticated edge.


Until last year, the company was working with a manual digitizing table to import their styles to their Gerber CAD system. This made the work of the pattern manager laborious and slow. To solve the issue of productivity, the company adopted the NScan Automatic Pattern Digitizer.


Since the NScan writes native Accumark files, The styles can be scanned directly from the NScan to the Accumark storage areas. Instead of taking a few hours to digitize a long dress, the pattern maker is taking less than half of the time to export the paper samples to the CAD software now. 


The current pattern manager have actually used the NScan system in another well known fashion company. We are glad he can once again take advantage of the NScan Premium Digitizer scanner system.

 

The Rebecca Taylor collection is available at Rebecca Taylor boutiques and at rebeccataylor.com as well as high-end department and specialty stores worldwide.

Multiple Licenses / Multiple Locations

Charter Furniture Pattern Digitizing Case Study

Charter Furniture uses the NShot-Pro for Lectra and AutoCAD. They are a leading manufacturer of upholstery seating for the hospitality trade. With factories in North Carolina and Southern California, the company caters to clients all over the US and world. Their in house design and engineering team are able to assist in the development of items best suited to meet design intent while manufacturing product which is able to withstand the rigors of hospitality use.

The deployment of the NShot-Pro system was lead by Charter Furniture Engineer Manager. The company was physically transporting their patterns between factories which slowed down production and decreased effective communication. 

 

The NShot-Pro system now connects two different factories locations (the company has a Main License and a Terminal License that connects via the network). This allows their production and manufacturing team to save time and increase quality. Patterns that are digitized in one location can be easily shared with other users electronically via the server or email. 

 

Since the NSho-Pro saves the image of the original pattern as well, the production engineers can alsoo double check the original template with the digital format without having to look at the physical pattern. Charter Furniture has also acquired the NEstimate-Manual marker making for basic material estimates.

Easy to Use & Accurate. 

Apparel Pattern Digitizing Case Study

American multinational Urban Outfitters replaced their table digitizer with the NScan system for Optitex CAD to support their Pattern Makers and Technical Design team.

 

Before having the NScan system, the simply task of vectoring pattern drawings to their Optitex CAD would take several hours. The task of digitizing was also being outsource from the TD team to the Pattern team since using a digitizing table often requires specific skills and repetitive tasks. 

The NScan system is currently being used by both the Pattern Room team and the Technical Designers.

Many of the Pattern Room & Technical Design users are veteran NScan users from other well known Apparel companies.

Thank you Urban Outfitters for choosing the NScan System!

Viridian Glass Pattern Digitizing Case Study

Viridian Glass is a Glass company in New Zealand. They make custom made glass parts for their clients. A technician normally goes on location to trace the shape of the client patterns on a cardboard paper or transparent plastic. This cardboard paper or transparent plastic is brought to the digitizer person which takes a picture with the NShot-Pro. After the pattern is digitized with the NShot-Pro, the technician saves it as AutoCAD dxf file and send it to a cutter to be cut.

 

Besides tracing client patterns on paper and plastic, Viridian Glass also receives patterns made by their clients. These patterns come in all shapes and qualities. 

Viridian Glass management team chose the NShot-Pro because of its flexibility (can digitize multiple types of patterns including transparent plastic marked with a sharpie) and reach. Because they are in the glass industry their patterns can be very large.

All Major CAD and CAM  formats.

Multiple Users & Capabilities.

London College of Fashion Pattern Digitizing Case Study

London College of Fashion & Central Saint Martin are considered the leading global providers of fashion education, research and consultancy. They have been voted the best fashion schools by several publications around the world.

The College has been using the N-hega systems since 2004 and was one of the first to see the importance of technology and modernization on the production process of the garment industry.
