We have been conduction a survey of 3D fashion users and the findings are listed below:
What is your biggest challenge when using 3D software for fit?
Fit vs Presentation not being aligned 21.43%
Having to use “tricks” or “fake out” details 57.14%
3D programs don’t work together 21.43%
What 3D programs do you use?
CLO3D – 85.71%
Browzwear – 35.71%
Optitex – 14.29%
Daz3D – 57.14%
Blender – 35.71%
Marvelous Designer – 50.00%
Other 7.14% (Maya, ZBrush)
What would you change about the 3D program you are using the most? (from the previous question)
Better fit representation and it needs to be quicker to render
More options of avatars that are able to do animation
Trim adding process/steps are a bit difficult to do for me
I would like more tools to help eliminate the need for fake details like hems, rolled cuffs, hidden packets, etc so I can create production-ready patterns.
Easier interoperability/data exchange with other apps
Better fabric simulation
Blender: better cloth engine would be nice
More standardized 3D behavior. 3D fit automation like snap to 3D measurement
tissue (Fabric) simulation
Add more choices about avatar appearance
Knots in Clo
