What is Pool Pattern Pro software?
Pool Pattern Pro software automates the design and development of vinyl pool liners and covers to reduce the time and costs to go from design to the cutting table.
Pool Pattern Pro provides a fast and simple workflow to move from specifying design parameters to flattening, nesting, and finally sending a job to the shop floor.
Why choose Pool Pattern Pro?
Within 30—60 days of implementation, pool liner and cover manufactures typically see a 30% to 50% increase in productivity and profitability.
Pool Pattern Pro is built on SOLIDWORKS and ExactFlat technology making it faster and less complicated to design, develop, prototype, cost and manufacture any product that incorporates composites, industrial fabrics or technical textiles.
With Pool Pattern Pro you will be able to overcome the common challenges faced by vinyl pool liner & cover manufactures
Reduce Repetitive Tasks
60-80% of your designs typically require only small changes to standard pool models, yet new drawings must be created for every project, increasing your design costs. With Pool Pattern Pro automation you can minimize the need for repetitive design work and reduce your costs.
Remove Your Risk of Error
Without a completely integrated system the need to transfer files from one software program to another means that quality checks are required to minimize the risk of errors, increasing your design and production costs. Pool Pattern Pro provides a complete system so you can move from design to cutter in the same system.
Manage Your Seasonal Demand
Fluctuations in seasonal demand make it challenging to manage resources. Give your clients the piece of mind of time and labour cost guarantees. Quickly capture concepts and present a 3D model of their design. From there use the flattening and panel layout software to produce a pool liner or cover that fit perfectly the first time. Pool Pattern Pro automation features allow you to free up resources for the seasonal increase in work.

Export directly to your existing cutter like you do now for fast, accurate cut pieces.
Integrated with SOLIDWORKS and ExactFlat:
Pool Pattern Pro is add-in software that leverages the power and intuitive interface of the leading CAD and industrial fabric design software on the market today.
Simple to use:
Drag-and-drop interface makes it easy for your existing team to become experts in just 8 hours.
Pool Pattern Pro Process
A simple three stage process to go from Design to Production
Easily create your Pool or Cover design in 2D or 3D from a library of templates (grecian, kidney, etc.).
Rather than develop a new drawing for every project, simply use a standard template, enter the customer dimensions and produce your design in minutes.
Pool Pattern Pro provides multiple data import and entry methods that are editable at any time. Import methods include:
- Tri File Import
- Pool Measure Pro file Import
- Manually enter A/B points
- Create “Dig Print” Freeform Pools
- Create Template Pools (Rectangles, Grecians, Lazy L’s, etc.)
- Create Sketch Import based pools
- Create Pools from TXT or Excel A/B data
Pool Pattern Pro flattens your design and processes each pattern piece for automatic placement with manual orientation optimization.
Allowing you to manipulate patterns on your ‘virtual table’ to visualize the cut file for the addition of any notches and welding overlaps which are then printed onto the pattern pieces for faster production.
Pool Pattern Pro automation reduces the time required for high-volume, manual steps to just minutes.
Nesting is integrated with your Pool Pattern Pro design and pattern work, nesting can run in the background and export directly to your existing cutter.
Plus if you make a change in your design or in your patterns your markers and nests update automatically — no more trafficking files between different software programs, no more errors from implementing changes, and no more lost time.
Finally export your nested pattern directly to your existing automated cutting machine, such an an Eastman conveyor system.

“The time we are gaining from freeing up the engineering team is now used proactively in research and development.”.
— Luke Malpas, Director of Engineering Automation, DON-BUR Engineering
“How do we keep our prices down and satisfy our customers? We continue to look for different ways to do things. We find a better way to do it”
— David Munschauer, President of ATECH-SEH.
“Our partners simply fill out a form on the internet, which then automatically generates all necessary documents. We started the implementation with a select group. By now, all our partners use the configurator, to their full satisfaction”
— Michel van Kerkhof, Head of Innovations at MHB
“Before using DriveWorks we would create 20 quotes in a month, now we can do 20 in a day. The process in the past was labor intensive as prices need to be calculated each time and drawings all had to be prepared manually.”
— David Martin, Managing Director, Elite Balustrade
“[We’ve] tried many things in the past, like creating [a] standard library of drawings, custom programming etc., when software like this was not available. Rules-based automation is the best, easy-to-use, scalable solution of them all”.
— Shaji Shereef, Director of Engineering Automation, FleetwoodGoldcoWyard
