In Optitex, and in other CAD software, text from DXF files each get recognized in separate strings according to a global "dictionary"
In order to facilitate easier importing, with automatic recognition of text in the importing software, the current strings should be appended with:
1. Name of Detail
3. Material type
4. Cut number
DXF/Layout Resulting Name
1. Piece Name: xx
2. Piece Code: xx
3. Material: xx
4. Quantity: xx
5. Do not use
Suggestion for Roman:
It is currently possible to make a "pattern label" in Valentina.
This pattern label contains the following information:
1. Pattern Name
2. Pattern Number
3. Company/Designer Name
4. Customer Name
5. Pattern Size
6. Measurement File
7. Date of Creation
- Do not use. I explain later.
- Merge with resulting Pattern Name
- Do not use. I explain later
- Use this as Pattern Name! (so 1., combined with 2.)
- Creation Date
So Pattern Label would be added to biggest piece only, then look like this:
Style Name: measurementfileblabla, 00012
Creation Date: 30-06-2017
Creation Time: 10:57:01
And Detail Label would look like:
Piece Name: Fabric_FrontLeft
Piece Code: AX
Now about Pattern Number. Right now, in the Pattern Properties under General Info, there is a string called Pattern Number. I don't really understand the philosophy behind this and have a better suggestion.
Right Now, you give a Pattern a name, AND a code. Why both? Name can also be a code. (It usually is)
If code automatically increments/increases when making a new layout, this will be logical. You have a constant, which is the "Pattern Name" this always takes the value from the measurement file. Then you have "Pattern Number", And each time you make a new layout, it goes from example "00011" to "00012". This would then be added after the "Pattern Name" with a ",".
