    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This standard is designed to facilitate communication between CAD/CAM systems that represent two-dimensional flat pattern pieces. This standard also provides conventions for representing related information such as grade rule tables. This standard is not intended to represent the relationships between pattern pieces or the correspondence between 2D or 3D sewn product pattern piece geometries.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D13 on Textiles, this practice was withdrawn in January 2019 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This standard is designed to facilitate communication between CAD/CAM systems that represent two-dimensional flat pattern pieces. This standard also provides conventions for representing related information such as grade rule tables. This standard is not intended to represent the relationships between pattern pieces or the correspondence between 2D or 3D sewn product pattern piece geometries.

    1.2 The file format for the pattern data exchange file defined by this standard (Practice D6673) complies with the Drawing Interchange File (DXF) format. Autodesk, Inc. developed the DXF format for transferring data between their AutoCAD(r) product and other software applications. This standard documents the manner in which pattern data should be represented within the DXF format. Users of this standard should have Autodesk, Inc.'s documentation on Drawing Interchange Files, found in the AutoCAD Reference Manual, in order to assure compatibility to all DXF format specifications. The AutoCAD Version 13 DXF specification is to be used. The file format for the grade rule table exchange file is an ASCII text file.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
