- An Avatar with both arms open is used to easily drape Garments. When the 3D Garment is completed draped on an Avatar or a Dummy, apply the Attention pose to the Avatar to check fit.
- To change the Avatar’s pose, load the Pose file from the Pose folder in the Library window.
Be careful to select the folder for the same Avatar currently in use to correctly load matching Avatar. Double click the Attention Pose file.
- In the 3D window, you can check the 3D Garment’s neckline and armhole are stretched. To prevent the stretch of the neckline and the armhole due to the weight of the Garment, apply seam tapes around the neckline and armhole.
- Select the Seam Taping tool from the 2D toolbar and click the neckline and armhole to apply seam tapes.
- Once the Simulation is activated, you may check the neckline and armhole are no longer stretched.
- To check fit accurately, the 3D Garment’s shoulder lines must match with the Avatar’s shoulder line.
- To see Avatar’s shoulder line clearly, use the Avatar Tape function to draw avatar tapes on the Avatar. Select the Linear Avatar Tape tool from the 3D toolbar and hover the mouse over the Avatar. Then, click a start point and an end point to create an Avatar tape.
- To create an Avatar Tape around a part of the Avatar, use the Circumference Avatar Tape tool. When using this tool, to assign the start, directional, and end points, click three times.
- Activate the Simulate tool and drag the 3D Garment to match its shoulder lines to the Avatar’s.
- Repeat the same procedure to match shoulder lines for both sides.
