I don't have any printer or plotter, what can I do?

It is not necessary to personally have a printer or plotter. It is sufficient to export the pattern to a PDF file and then contact a friend with a printer or a copy shop, bringing the pdf file on a simple USB stick, for example. See Printing Tutorial - Print to be done at a copy shop

I only have a simple A4 printer, how can I do?

There are two possible solutions:

On the TittiCad site I see the terms Model and Paper Pattern mentioned, are they the same thing?

Not exactly. By Model we mean what the designer creates, in practice it is the idea of ​​a garment inserted in the logic of TittiCad. For example, all the elements you see on the TittiCad main page are Templates.
By pattern we mean instead the result of applying your measurements to a Pattern. This will create various parts in full scale, which can be printed or exported to PDF, and which will then be applied to the fabric to cut it.
With TittiCad L3 and L4 you can become a designer yourself!

Which version of TittiCad is right for me?

It is possible to create your own tailor-made patterns using TittiCad using two different strategies:

Use the online pattern making service, available directly on this website
 . To do this you don't need to install anything, and you can use any device that allows you to surf the internet, for example PC, Smartphone, Tablet, iPhone, iPad, Mac, etc.
It's very simple to use, you don't need to install anything, register or open new accounts with passwords.
Simply choose one of the proposed models, enter your measurements and your email (where you will then receive the PDFs of the patterns and the relative instructions) and press the button to generate the preview. Free Patterns are also included, of which you can download your personalized pattern, without any commitment or constraint. We refer you to the Online Pattern Information page for more details on this innovative service.

Download and install the TittiCad program on a Windows PC.
Depending on your needs, the TittiCad program is available in 4 different levels.
Know that:
Each level represents a separate program.
Each Level includes all the features of the lower levels.
All levels share the same interface, so switching between levels won't require you to relearn anything. The higher Levels will simply have a richer interface, which will give access to new or more advanced functions.

Here is a quick description of the 4 Levels, with links to pages that better explain their functionality:

  1. TittiCad L1: it is the basic level, the simplest to use, but which still allows you to create, print and export customized patterns in PDF, automatically designed by the program based on the body measurements you entered. As with all the patterns made by TittiCad, these are never simplistic creations based on the concept of Size, but automatic customizations, based on your body measurements, of patterns created by the designers. This makes TittiCad a truly innovative product. See the information page for TittiCad L1.
  2. TittiCad L2: this level adds an Edit page, through which you can customize all the parts that make up the pattern. You can move points, lengthen or shorten lines, and precisely vary the shape of the various curves that make up the outline of each part.
    No CAD skills or particular pattern making knowledge is required. See the information page for TittiCad L2.
  3. TittiCad L3: is the version dedicated to personal productivity without limits. You can modify existing models in the catalogue, or create totally new ones starting from predefined types (trousers, skirts, culottes, basic bodices or with darts, both with or without kimono sleeves). You can then add an infinite number of components, processes or modifications to the basic parts, already created to your measurements. We refer you to the L3 information page for a more complete description of the available features.
  4. TittiCad L4 : this level adds to TittiCad L3 the necessary functionalities to ensure that a new Model created by you adapts appropriately to other people's measurements. Here too, it is not a question of a simple Size Development, but of entering the necessary information to ensure that the final creation of the Pattern scales precisely on the personal measurements that will be entered from time to time. This version is designed for advanced users, tailors, companies and fashion designers who then want to distribute their work.
    See the information page for TittiCad L4.

If I buy for example TittiCad L1, and I want to move to a higher level, do I have to buy it again?

Since this process is part of the natural learning process for using the program, you will only pay the difference in price between the two levels, whichever level you have already purchased and the higher one you want to upgrade to. In this case, contact us at and we will provide you with the cost and operating procedures for purchasing the upgrade.

Is it possible to try the TittiCad program before buying it?

Certain. In the presence of a web connection on your PC, we offer a 7-day trial period (up to a maximum of 4 patterns) with no restrictions on operation. You can then create, print and export the desired patterns in PDF, always on your personal measurements. Once the trial period is over, it is still powerful to continue testing the program, but without being able to print and export the patterns. But, especially for the higher Levels, you can continue your evaluations by creating, for example, new models based on your creativity.
