Pattern and Design

Using our specially designed Auto CAD system for footwear grading components along with our computer table we can cut paper patterns in a variety of sizes for use in our knife making and dieforme departments.

We also produce hand cutting templates for short run hand cutting applications.  We also offer a computer controlled routing service for detailed plastic sheet cutting. This includes short runs a gaskets where tooling is not viable and is often a more economic option to waterjet or laser. Popular materials for this are poly carbonate and rubber sheeting among other materials.

Our Auto CAD system is also used for general pattern making and files sent via email can be converted into patterns for use by our knife making team.

Files we are able to work from:

  • Adobe .pdf
  • .dxf

If you don’t have computer files we are happy to work from a print outs, sketches or samples.

Files can be uploaded via our Contact Us page.
