Notch Types

tidivi23tidivi23 Posts: 145 ✭✭

Hello,

How can I visually tell the difference between a "reference" notch and a "regular notch" (assuming there is an obvious distinction).

When a notch has a "triangular" point attached to it, does that only mean that it is attached to a grade rule and/or reference point (how to tell the difference?) what implications come from deleting a reference point?

Thanks in advance!

Tara

    @tidivi23 reference notches has a half oval shape on the notch while regular notches do not.  If there is a downward triangle on a notch, it means there is a grade rule assigned to the notch.  A reference notch is designed to maintain a distance from a another point to the notch.   For instance, if an armhole notch must stay at 3" from the armhole/side seam point for all sizes, you may have a reference notch for that.  If you delete a reference notch, you remove maintaining the distance from a point to the notch for all sizes.

    And a tangent notch. How do those work? What are some of the tools you can use to manipulate tangent notches?

    @Cbrant, the reference notch is keeping distance from other grade point for all sizes. Event you change line the distance will be same.
    But the tangent notch can keep different distance from other point fir any size. To change distance for size different base you've add tangent delta of distance base size
