3d Scanning: Draping Virtual Textiles
1:00pm — 4:00pm
Location: Steinberg 204
About The Workshop
We will begin by 3D scanning your body, or the object of your choice. Then, you will take a 2D pattern and assemble it on an avatar of yourself, or the object of your choice. Add style lines, color, textiles, and a graphic to the design. You will export an image and a 3D gif of yourself in a garment or textile shape that you designed, and you will have a 2D pattern file that you can print in actual size.
Cross Disciplinary Connections
A designer, artist or an architect who wants to cover a form will find the CAD patternmaking and Browzwear virtual design capabilities useful.
