Some best tools to simulate clothing in 3D

Digital fashion is slowly emerged as one of the best way to present the creativity of designers to life. You are not just limited in sketching and illustrating, but now can create 3D garment and simulate motion, even make a digital fashion show by yourself. To do that, we see many software be able to help you design and make clothes, and to serve customers faster than traditional fashion. This article will introduce some of the best tools to simulate clothing in 3D, you can choose whichever most suitable for your workflow.

CLO 3D - Best 3D Garment Design Software

CLO 3D is an interactive and intuitive 3D CAD program, which is really easy to use. It’s not only used for clothes, but anything out of fabric likes hats, purses, wallets, lingerie, swimwear, etc.

In CLO 3D, you can create 2D pattern and sew them into 3D costumes. You will have choices for color schemes, styles, sizing, you can add layers, folds to 3D design, make them move like in real life.

One of the most used case of CLO 3D is that designers can export their designs into real world. You can produce the mock up garment with CLO, send it to your customers and they will visually have an imagination how it looks, and if it’s okay you can send them to manufacturing. It reduces the process of making a mockup physical garment, which is time-consuming and expensive.
