Nice to meet you, my name is Akinobu Ushizaka, a pattern maker.
This time, we will introduce custom-made pattern making.
My work begins with the integration of data collected from customers and confirmation of measured figures. This number is important data that has been associated with customers for a long time by spending their valuable time.
Don't miss a single spot.
What kind of bike you want to ride and what kind of concept you want to finish. The pattern is also very different depending on whether you mainly wear street clothes or focus on riding.
In addition, the photos taken at the time of ordering are useful for imagining the three-dimensional shape from the numbers. The drawing is subtracted from 1. Of course, thanks to the simulation of the point part with ready-made products, we will compare it with the ready-made pattern, but it is only a reference.
In the past, I used to make drawings on cardboard by hand, but I use a computer that uses pattern making software called CAD, which has been introduced in recent years.
With the introduction of this CAD, pattern management has progressed dramatically, but in reality, it's just hand-drawn pattern making on the computer screen, so what you do is almost the same.
I will draft while going back and forth between the 3D in my head and the 2D of the drawing.
It's a steady job, but it requires imagination and logic.
While imagining a customer who is happy to wear the finished product,
Here at Kadoya Headquarters Building 6F, I am working hard today.
