A CAD tool for the garment industry is described. The tool generates garment patterns using Bézier curves and is currently embedded within an intelligent knitwear design support system. The curves fulfil the design constraints imposed by the domain, are adaptable to individual styles and enable intuitive manipulation by the user. The system described is designed primarily to provide a means of improved communication between designers and technicians but it has the potential to become a key component in a bespoke design system.
