Default Dynamic Image

Dear friends,

i am having a problem in designing a T-Shirt based on the measurements given as input. The procedure is like..

one t-shirt requires 2 mts of cloth. so they cut it into collar, hands, main body with minimum measurements, according to the client's requirements. since he is
maintaining a database of the material available with him, he wants to computerize this
operation also, to make life easier for the cutting dept people. once they enter the details of the sizes, measurements like 20 cm length, 25 cm width, curvature of 45 degrees angle etc etc...the system should design a prototype with the given measurements, just to depict it to the cutting supervisor, how the image will be after cutting. he will make a print out of it and attatch that to the lot, which is being forwarded to the cutting dept. so they follow exactly the same measurements using it. he has the required infrastructure already for that like HP designjet printer etc. now, practically, they are doing it manually. this is the case.

My problem is how to design an image at runtime based on the measurements. Its a very serious problem. Plsss help me.


Thanks in advance

This really isn't a PHP issue as much as it is a mathematics issue. I'm assuming that the cut pieces are all similar to each other -- that is, they're all the same shape, all angles are the same, all curves are the same, and the ratio of all lenths are the same.

That said, the image generating function doesn't really need to generate a new image for every size, but needs to calculate the new lengths to be cut to make the same design.

So that means that if your Medium size is 10% larger than your small size, then all your curves and angles are the same, and all your sides are 10% longer.

You can use the same cutout base image and just generate new length text onto that image using the gd image creation and manipulation library extension.

Take care,
