I have created this topic for people to gather thoughts and input on what should be included in a new software tool like the one mentioned in recent discussion on other threads. I will post links to those other discussions here. The “french curve” tool or specific tools used in specific patternmaking systems could be provided as an overlay on the screen so that a user could draw a new pattern against the reference.
I see this as an automated way to “lay the tool against the screen”. I invite discussion here, please.
Please see the discussion started in the thread on jacket patterns and trousers here https://forum.seamly.net/t/men-jackets-and-trousers-screenshot/3142
Please take note of the tool used by @luca_lavore in Italy https://seamly.discoursehosting.net/uploads/db1488/original/2X/1/191a8c8ff6d9ee5f5c19c8e26367228880313cd1.jpeg
