Measures any curved objects and assists your work with convenient tools

Adobe Illustrator is a smart option for anyone who wants to draft patterns more intuitive and freely. However, this great software doesn’t have enough functions for that because it’s not made for pattern making.

Segment Tools adds necessary features for pattern drafting such as measuring curves and creating notches. This will solve time-consuming jobs like adjustment of arm hole and make your work much faster and more accurate. Let’s make beautiful patterns with Segment Tools!

  • Pointer Tool : This tool creates a pointer (notch) instantly at accurate location.
  • Handle Line Tool : This tool draws a handle of a bazier curve as a line. You can also create a diagnal line to draw an extended line.
