Browzwear: 3D Virtual Pattern and Prototyping of Textile Material Objects

Workshop


Nov 13th,

1:00pm — 4:00pm


Location: ZOOM! (Link To Come)

About The Workshop

The instructor will give an overview of the Pattern drafting and 3D visualization process in Browzwear’s V-Stitcher program by focusing on a t-shirt. You will add style lines, color, textiles, and a graphic to the design. You will export an image and a 3D gif of the realistic-looking garment on an avatar and you will have a 2D pattern file that you can print in actual size if you desire.

Cross Disciplinary Connections

Design, art and architecture topics related to creating products or shapes from textiles would be able to create patterns and virtually test ideas. Post-workshop, the pattern can be printed physically and the analog item be realized in actual fabric.

Takeaways

A file of your scanned body in 3D. A 2D pattern file that you can print in actual size.
Experience with Browzwear’s Lotta and V-Stitcher programs, Experience 3D scanning with a structure scanner.

Next Steps

Workshop participants can enroll in Introduction to Fashion and further their fashion design knowledge. If enough interest is expressed, a SFS elective class building and expanding 3D virtual realization of textile objects for a range of purposes may be offered. Access to the Browzwear software will continue after the workshop for independent exploration.
