3D Simulation and Concept Development Short course

Course content

This two-day short course will focus on the use of the three-dimensional simulation software of the Shima Seiki Apex Design System. The programme enables the user to develop and visualise a custom-sized mannequin to create garments that can be virtually fitted and assessed for pattern adjustments, while making various colourways, designs and patterns on the garment in a ‘live’ view

A broad range of products including footwear, interior design and furnishings, commercial spaces, apparel and visual art can be further realised and ‘mesh mapped’ onto existing photos or sketches, to create realistic concept development images with the easy to use tools of scale adjustments, seamless pattern repeat, colourways and fabric options.
