I bought this product on the DAZ website. When I go to readme and try to click on documentation or customer support, they are bad links (it seems like there are a lot of bad links to DAZ).
I"m trying to figure out how to use this product. I understand dynamic clothing and have used it quite a bit. It’s the patterns I’m unsure what to do with.
Anyone have any suggestions or links to tutorials or the right link for documentation or customer support by the merchant?
Thanks,

It’s a product which hasn’t yet had its readme updated for the new documentation centre - when it does it will be here http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/read_me/index/13678/start

The patterns are pieces of cloth that can be combined with others to build up a particular look - it’s just a question of loading and layering, probably simulating some before adding others but you will need to experiment. The thread created when it was released is here, though you will need to perform surgery on the links to see the images (copy the partial link from the HTML and paste it after forumarchive.daz3d.com, then paste the whole thing into your browser’s address bar to get to the image).

If you have all the installers there’s a guide installed to readme’s:  11300_UltimatePatternDesignKit.pdf

That’s the product code for the DS version - I wasn’t sure if the Poser version had it, though it should (a major part of the guide was a list of shapes, as I recall).

Thank you everyone for responding so quickly. I’ll look for the guide, but now I also get how I might start experimenting.
Thanks again!

The PDF just tells you what files are in the package, but no info on making use of the pattern pieces.  Does anyone know of any even basic tutorial to get me started (and yes I’ve been using the DAZ dynamic items for a long time).

I don’t really have a tutorial, but there’s not much to it, either. You position the pieces (you can use different layouts for the pieces in the ‘Styles’ window in the Dynamic Clothing Tab), choose what items to collide them with and then you drape them.
