Sponsor Presentation: The Use of Half-Scale Dress Forms in the Classroom and In Professional Development

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The use of half-scale forms in conjunction with CAD for patternmaking is changing the dynamic in the classroom, as students can create using fewer resources: less space, less material, and less time in initial development of patterns, patterns that are ready for first prototype once they are digitized into the CAD system and scaled up. The use of half-scale can also benefit us as professionals, opening a pathway to more efficient development of our own creative practice, and, with the Halfscale Forum, connecting us with our peers across the country, across the world, and from academia to industry. Come see and experience the process of creating on the half-scale form in the classroom and in our own studios. Participants of the Halfscale Forum pilot test and anyone interested in participating in this forum in the future are invited to come and netowrk. Alvanon will also announce the details of their student Half-Scale Design Competition!
