Photo Digitizer

Photo Digitizer

Don’t waste time placing the patterns on a special digitizing surface, fixing them with adhesive tape or using other time-wasting methods.

Just clean up your normal working table for a bit, leave the patterns there and go to the computer. ONE simple click, and the camera automatically captures the picture and transfers it to the computer. The image is automatically processed and the patterns are extracted in just a few seconds.

A smart and simple calibration procedure has to be carried out only once, when you first install the system, offering a comfortable precision, that is less than 0.7 mm.

The Photo Digitizer can automatically extract the pattern contour, by using precise Bezier curves, and it can also identify corners and mark them as reference points, it can identify different types of notches (marked or cut), internal points and internal lines. By convention, the longest internal line found will be declared grain axis.

A quick and easy inspection of the automatic digitizer result can be carried out by using the Contour Play function.

It allows measuring distances and perimetral contours, checking and adjusting the internal elements or the shape of the curves, if necessary, adding or deleting any element, inputting the piece name, all in one single window.

It allows saving the patterns directly in the native format of your CAD system.
The Photo Digitizer can save the patterns in the native format of Gemini, Lectra, Gerber, Investronica and Assyst.
The patterns can also be exported for any other CAD System by using the standard DXF-AAMA format.
The system will remember the saving settings (location, format, etc.), so you can have the patterns available directly in your CAD system with one simple click.

The Photo Digitizer system can be setup in various configurations, depending on the arrangement of your office.
The easiest way is to use your normal working table or desk as a digitizing surface.
This solution saves a lot of time, because you don’t have to fix the patterns at all, you simply leave them on the table and digitize them.
For this solution, the camera can be fixed directly on the room ceiling or on the wall.
A scanner (normal flat-bed or wide format) can also be used for special technical high-precision applications.

3.Saving the patterns :

Save the patterns directly in the native format of your CAD system. It does not matter what CAD system you use, the Photo Digitizer is compatible with it.
The system will remember the saving settings (location, format, etc.), so you can have the patterns available directly into your CAD system with one simple click.

What CAD systems are compatible with Photo Digitizer ?

The Photo Digitizer can save the patterns in the native original format of Lectra, Gerber, Investronica, Assyst and Gemini.The patterns can also be exported for any other application by using the standard DXF-AAMA format, and it was tested with FK, TetraCad, Optitex, Wearcad, Konsan, Tukatech, PolyPattern, Richpeace, Novocut, Vetigraph, Consult+, Astor, AGMS, Julivi, Moda 01 and others.

How can you install the photo-digitizer ?

The Photo Digitizer system can be setup in various configurations, depending on the arrangement of your office. The easiest way is to use your normal working table as digitizing surface. This solution saves a lot of time, because you don’t have to fix the patterns at all, you simply leave them on the table and digitize them. For this solution, the camera can be fixed directly on the room ceiling (A), or a normal camera stand (B) can be equally used. You can also use the wall as digitizing surface if you don’t have a table available, and the camera can be placed on a normal stand (C). A scanner (normal flat-bed or wide format) can also be used for special technical high-precision applications (D).

What pattern elements will be extracted automatically ?

The Photo Digitizer can automatically extract the pattern contour, by using precise Bezier curves, it can identify corners and mark them as reference points, it can identify different types of notches (marked or cut), internal points and internal lines. By convention, the longest internal line found will be declared grain axis. When the pattern is created inside the office, it is useful to follow some standard marking procedures, avoiding any manual adjustment of the digitizing results.
