The Grafis system

The Grafis system includes first pattern develop- ment, grading and an industry standard layplanning system. Patterns can be graded by application of the construction system or using grade rules. During the styling process Grafis internally creates a record of the modification steps. The record can then be re-called to create other sizes automatically thus, eliminating incremental grading. Grafis also records how patterns are derived from one another, capturing the interdependence of the pieces. Alterations made to one piece are automati- cally applied to all interdependent pieces. Construction parameters can be applied during pattern development. This enables the user to com- fortably modify already finished patterns by simply changing the construction parameters.

Prerequisites The following are requirements for learning to use Grafis: • basic knowledge in the use of computers, in

particular the use of keyboard and mouse as well as working with files and folders and

• good knowledge of garment pattern cutting. The application of Grafis can also be learned without knowledge of garment pattern cutting for example for use in the upholstery industry. Grafis replaces the user's
