    Weld the selected patterns connected by sewing lines.

    Thin / Thick 

    Sets whether to export geometry of the rendering thickness.

    Unified UV Coordinates (PNG)

    Exports the texture information of all garment patterns to fit within the UV coordinate values between 0 and 1.

    Image Scale

    Set image scales.

    Fill Texture Seams

    This Function expands the range of the texture based on the border of the texture.

    Include Internal Shapes  The information of the Internal Line included in the garment is also exported.

    • Ascii: The file is saved as text so the user can open and understand it.


    Relative Texture Image File Path

    Save only the texture name without the texture image path, so if the saved FBX file and the texture image used in the file are in the same path, the texture image is automatically loaded. 

    Absolute Texture Image File Path

    Save the folder path where the texture image was located as the texture image path. If the path of the texture image is changed, the texture image cannot be loaded. 

    Embed Media (.zip)

    Export as a zip file along with the texture files used.

    When a color is applied to the texture, it is saved as a combined color and texture.
