Virtual Tailor's Dummy Makes Designing Clothes Easy
February 27, 2012 | Hogan Keyser
Six ceiling-mounted cameras are trained on the dummy and on two tools held by the designer, one for creating surfaces and other for cutting them. The tools and the dummy both have markers, so the cameras can work out where in 3D space they are relative to each other. As the designer draws and works on and around the physical mannequin, this shows up on a virtual onscreen version.
"The idea is to make it easy for people to design clothes," says Wibowo. Usually you have to choose set patterns, which is limiting, she says. What's particularly difficult is working out what 2D shapes are needed in order to achieve a particular 3D design.
