Seamallowance problem


I have attached an image. Is it possible to remove that piece of the seam allowance over point B5? The fabric should be folded on line b12-b5, so I want the seam allowance to be shaped horizontally. Do you know what I mean?

Thank you. Monika

Ok, I fixed the problem. It only appears if I make 0,7cm seam allowance or smaller. If I do 0,71 or more, it works :blush:

You can see it on my second piece :slight_smile:


It can also help to change the seamallowance angle at node B5: SeamAllowanceAngle (by length is the default)


That’s odd. The seam allowance width shouldn’t matter… like Pneumarian mentioned changing the angle is what should change the how the allowance is drawn.

Seams like a bug. Pun intended. :slight_smile:

I’d be interested in seeing your val (and vit) file(s) if you wouldn’t mind posting them so I could take a look at it, and I’ll look at the code well to see what’s up with the width making a difference.


I just got an idea… it’s always hard to remember what each angle option does. The dialog could use a small diagram of how each option looks.


I concur. This sounds like a good idea!
