Abstract
(EN)

A method and apparatus for adjusting a marker in preparation for cutting that is adapted for use with fabrics having a stripe or plaid patterns that provide for an axis of symmetry. The present invention is characterized by computer assisted design matching that provides for either manual or automatic alignment of the garment segments in the computerized marker with reference and match locations on the fabric web.
