As the process of footwear design transcends to digital, collections are produced more quickly putting even more pressure on pattern engineers to produce patterns more quickly and accurately. With Engineer, you can digitise patterns easily so you can edit them faster and with greater precision.
Engineer is the international market-leading pattern engineering CAD software used by both worldwide brands and small manufacturers. Years of feedback and development make it the most comprehensive and powerful yet easy-to-use 2D pattern engineering solution.
We understand that experienced pattern engineers produce new patterns by hand quickly. With Engineer, you can digitise patterns easily so you can edit them faster and with greater precision. Engineer also makes grading and group grading easy so you no longer need to rely on a third party.
Together, these features give you total control over tooling costs and remove the need to make compromises in production so you get your designs to manufacture faster.
