There is a permanent contest among several CAD software producers to incorporate more and more types of seam allowance corners. Gemini Pattern Editor was among the leaders, with a total of 28 types, each becoming more and more elaborated, to respond to most user requests.
However, in the new X19 version, we considered that the struggle should not be focused on adding more and more corner types, but rather to make it really useful and easy to use. Studying user behavior, Gemini realized that most of the users do not actually use the newest corners, for the simple reason that they are too complicated and difficult to manage, with a lot of settings and values.
So, the big achievement on this version is facilitating the use of the corner by adding a detailed visual description of the corner and a simple way to customize the values in order to obtain the desired results.
Our latest version of the application also includes the most wanted feature: automatic synchronization of the shape of two related corners from different pieces. In most of the competitor programs, this goal is achieved manually by free hand editing of the seam allowance. Gemini CAD refused to adopt this manual time-consuming method, but rather to build the geometrical algorithms to obtain this outcome automatically.
