With Pattarina App for iOS and Android, cutting patterns can be projected onto fabric and paper using Augmented Reality (AR) and easily traced. The free app uses a graphic anchor (a 15 cm x 17 cm graphic) so that the cutting patterns are displayed in the correct size. New patterns can be added to the app using a QR code. Additional information, details on download and usage as well as further information on Pattarina can be found in this post.
Anyone who sews a piece of clothing themselves from time to time knows this: Patterns either have to be ordered as large sheets of paper, printed in the copy shop or put together from many A4 prints. Pattarina wants to remedy this - with the AR app you can see on the display of your smartphone where the lines for the pattern run on your fabric or your sheet of paper. And that works in three simple steps:
The whole thing takes a bit of practice, of course, as you hold the smartphone with one hand and trace the lines on the fabric with the other hand. The length of fabric should not be able to slip away easily (weigh down if necessary) and the anchor graphic should also be stuck, for example fixed by pins. You can find more information and the anchor download on the official website.
Thanks to the graphics that you have to print out and fix on the fabric, the app does not require any special technology in the smartphone to display the cutting patterns correctly scaled. And so you can download the Pattarina app both for the iPhone from iOS 9.0 and for Android smartphones from Android 7.0. The whole thing is via the official sources Apple App Store and Google Play Store possible. Have fun sewing things;)
