How to create measurements table

  • Updated

1. What is the measurement section?

All techpacks on Techpacker are divided between three main default sections i.e. mceclip4.png sketches,materials and Alphabet-c.png measurements,.. and Alphabet-d.png the custom sections.

Measurement section is one of the three main default sections where you will add all points of measurements (POM's) of your design like chest, waist, underarm length, HPS length etc along with their associated specs for each size in the form of measurement table.




Each point of measurement has its own separate card in this section. 

A measurement table has all the  point of measurements (POM)s and  tolerance.





TOL, short for Tolerance that you provide to your manufacturer as an understanding that you'll except the measurements if it's within the tolerance. For example, if the waist measurement that you provided to your manufacturer is 33 1/2 inches and the tolerance as (+/-) 1/2". When you receive your first sample, if the waist is 34" or 33", it's acceptable however if it's 34 1/4", that's considered out of tolerance.
