4. HOW TO ATTACH THE DIGITAL FORCE GAUGE TO THE FABRIC KIT
Use total of eight screws to assemble. Remaining two screws are extra.
Screw the Jig into the Digital Force Gauge. Turn about 3-4 times and do not tighten all the way. However screw the Jig until the Control Lever faces up, aligning with the Digital Force Gauge.
Align the Holder underneath the Digital Force Gauge.
Fasten the Holder to the Digital Force Gauge with Screws (x4).
Loosely tighten the Screws (x4) to affix the Digital Force Gauge to the Fabric Kit, enough so that Digital Force Gauge can be moved.
Shift the Digital Force Gauge to align the Jig as the image below vertically.
Tighten Screw B to affix the Digital Force Gauge Holder to the Fabric Kit.
If the Digital Force Gauge is not affixed properly, the measured Force values may not be accurate.

6. HOW TO MAKE FABRIC
Launch CLO Enterprise, then switch to Emulator mode using the top-right drop-down menu to enter the values measured from the Fabric Kit.
A. SWATCH PREPARATION
Before cutting out the swatches, please ironing the swatch gently without causing any shrinkage.
Confirm the grainline of the fabric.
Prepare a total of three swatches with the provided stencil.
Each swatch will represent a different grain, cut in the (1) weft, (2) warp, and (3) bias directions, measuring 220mm x 30mm in size.
These will be used to measure the weight, bending, and stretch properties of the fabric.
Cut the swatches along the drawn guidelines, being as precise as possible for accurate measurements.
B. FABRIC WEIGHT
Turn on the scale.
Place all three swatches on the scale.
Enter the displayed weight in the Emulator.
C. FABRIC THICKNESS
Press the lever of the thickness gauge to create a gap and place the swatch.
Place the 220mm x 30mm swatch in between the gap.
Release the lever and enter the measured thickness to the Emulator.
Click Next to continue.
D. BENDING TEST
The Bending Test is performed 3 times : first for the weft swatch, and next the warp swatch, then the last for the bias swatch.
Slide open the 1-1 Ruler of the Bending Test device.
Turn the 1-2 Clamp back, then insert the end of the swatch, lining it up to the dotted line.
Pull down the 1-2 Clamp to affix the swatch.
Wind the 1-4 Control Lever clockwise, then stop when the fabric hits the ground.
Measure and enter this point of contact as the Contact Distance (A).
Place the 1-1 Ruler beneath the swatch, then enter the measured length (B) in the Emulator.
E. STRETCH TEST
The stretch test will allow you to measure the stretchability and threshold at which a fabric will no longer stretch. To do this you will explore the relationship between length of stretch and force applied to the fabric, then record and input your findings into the Emulator Mode of CLO.
The reading from the Length Ruler and Digital Force Gauge combined will be one set of measurements. You will need a minimum of 3 sets and a maximum of 5 sets for each swatch.
When testing, you will need to determine, which unit of length will be your constant.
Wind the Control Lever until the needle aligns with 0 on the Length Ruler.
Loosen the Clamps at each end of the Fabric Bed.
Insert both ends of the swatch between the Jig openings, aligning the 10mm line marks.
Tighten the Clamps at each end to secure the swatch ends.
Turn on the Digital Force Gauge.
Determine Length constant:
We recommend you to fill out all five sections as possible because when you have more measurements, data is more accurate.
When the swatch is pulled by 1mm and the force is less than 0.01kgf
1) Pull the fabric swatch until the force value is 0.01kgf.
2) Starting with the length reached at step 1, check the length and force of each 10mm increment.
3) Record 10 sections. (In the case of not being able to record 10 sections, record all the measurable sections.)
4) Use a value only when the force difference of each section is at least 0.02kgf. (If the force difference for each interval is less
than 0.02kgf, do not use that value.)
5) Finally, select and use values resulted in at least 3 sections and up to 5 sections. (We recommend that you fill out all five
sections as much as possible because the more measurements you have, the more accurate the data is.).
When the swatch is pulled by 1 mm and the force value is over 0.01kgf
1) Check the value of the force when the swatch is pulled to 1mm.
2) Starting with the length reached at step 1, check the length and force of each 1mm increments.
3) At this time, measure 3 to 5 sections. (We recommend that you ll out all ve sections as much as possible because the more
measurements you have, the more accurate the data is)
Once the test has been completed for a swatch, reset the Control Lever so the needle aligns with 0 on the Length Ruler. Then unscrew the clamp at each end and remove the swatch. If you are finished testing you can turn the Digital Force Gauge off. In between each swatch test you should turn the digital force gauge off and then back on after the needle has been returned to the 0 marks.

7. HOW TO USE THE DIGITAL FORCE GAUGE
The Digital Force Gauge uses the default settings as the image below. If a button was mistakenly pushed, power the Digital Force Gauge off, then on, to reset the device to its default settings. However, if the default unit of measurement was changed, press button B to reset the device to Kgf.
FREQUENTLY USED BUTTONS
A. POWER - turn the Digital Force Gauge on/off
C. LED - turn the LED display on/off
D. UNIT - change the unit of measurement; Kgf is used to measure the stretch
FREQUENTLY USED BUTTONS
The following buttons are not used in the Stretch Test.
If one of these buttons are mistakenly pushed, reset the Digital Force Gauge with the Power button.
Use the provided adapter to charge the Digital Force Gauge.
