I am using Rhino to create textile patterns. The design unrolls, gets printed to a paper pattern, cut to fabric and then sewn together.
To achieve the best end result I would like to mark the pieces where things need to align. Ideally I would mark the spot once and this would then transfer to both the fabric pieces as they are flattened and printed to paper pattern. Imagine cutting across a seam with a pair of scissors before opening up the seam. The cut would act as a mark and allow these two pieces of fabric to easily be aligned if one wanted to sew them back together again. (Lets ignore that the cut ruined it for now…)
I have been playing around with arrays and flow along curve/surface. My method feels flawed since it takes quite some work to get the markings aligned on both fabric pieces in preparation for flattening.
Any ideas to how I could do the above in a fast and efficient manner?
