This paper will offer the opportunity to consider the role of Commercial CAD software (including Adobe Photoshop® and Illustrator®) in the future of Creative Pattern Cutting. The packages, which aid and support the visualisation and presentation process could have an important role in the design process itself; but could they also form the focus of a new generation of pattern cutters? Could the software enable truly innovative consideration of the 3-Dimensional form and offer the opportunity to create directional and original patterns entirely digitally? The research will consider the collaboration of these packages with other technologies (including CAD/CAM systems, Digital Print and Laser Cutting) to enable full evaluation of the exciting future of hands free Creative Pattern Cutting; as well as considering the benefits of working in this way to communicate patterns and designs to Suppliers and Manufacturers working in bulk production.
