AutoSketch provides unlimited possiblities with your Statler
Just getting started with AutoSketch or looking for more challenges? Presented here are tutorials to assist you.
Getting Started - Start here. This tutorial focuses on the basics. This step by step guide demonstrates the drawing tools used and the requirements for creating a pattern for the Statler Stitcher.
Default Template - Normally, a default template is used with AutoSketch. The template is a set page size that includes macros and other useful information to make pattern conversion easier. Download a Template Here
End Point Alignment - When continuous repeating patterns are created, an alignment of the First and Last points should be kept. Here is an easy way to ensure or to correct endpoints that are not on the same horizontal plane.
Trim Join - Considered as a Quick Test in pattern development. The AutoSketch Trim Join tool helps identify problems with a drawing before being introduced to PrecisionStitch.
How to Trace - A common task many ask about is tracing or digitizing pattern for use with PrecisionStitch. This guide demonstrate bringing in an image for tracing. (scanned image, digital photo, etc...)
No Sew Lines - Creating multi segment drawings without having a sewn path between them is accomplished with No Sew Lines. Works great with lettering or other special need patterns.
Text as patterns - Personalize any quilt by inlcuding a name or phrase. Text can be converted into a sewable pattern. Many fonts are available, including those characters like webdings.
Circular Arrays Part 1 / Part 2 - Circular Arrays have intrigued many. Here are a couple of tutorials that will help you to create your very own. Broken into 2 parts. Part 1 sets up a template, part 2 creates an array
Toolbars - You can have your own toolbar. Create or customize a toolbar for your own needs. AutoSketch has the tools to allow customization of certain toolbars or create one of your own.
Corner Block Math - Border patterns with corner blocks that wrap around a corner present a pattern sizing issue. Here are steps to show how to find a Modifier for use in calculting the correct pattern size. Another example
Triangle Patterns - Even though this technique is generally obsolete for setting triangles, there are still benefits in understanding how this works. It works for triangles and other shaped patterns equally.
Border Patterns - Not all border patterns are created the same. Pattern Geometric Border 3 is a great example. See how the "Info" box is used to set up this pattern to fit between the corners. Download Pattern Set (“Border Patterns” ZIP file in TUTORIALS folder)
Multi Segment - Several patterns with the system have more than one segment to complete the pattern. Many times, those segments are not always the same size. Having them all fit together has normally meant working with MOD's, lot's of math, or just guessing. This tutorial shows a method to prepare all segments so they use the same measurements. No Mods, No Math and No Guessing.
