Has anyone had experience using this software? I've noticed it seems to be focused towards the gaming industry but was wondering if there was any experience out there using the 2D patterns for production/mockup purposes.

They seem to also have a Fashion Industry specific product:

http://www.clo3d.com/

The biggest issue I see is their pricing :

$600 for an Individual.
$ 4,000 for the same product if used in Industry.

No word on price for the clo3d , but they seem to charge according to the client-uggh.

From Their faq :

we frequently check the use of Personal License in companies


Too big brother for me, but yeah, looks cool.

Thanks for the reminder! I've been meaning to download the 15 day Trial for the last couple of months.

I've been seeing more great examples (mainly student work) of ID softgoods projects using Marvelous

Been tinkering a bit with it, and will probably show it to our design technicians.

So far, it looks like it wouldn't be a super effective tool for patternmaking. Everything is sewn edge to edge, etc. But i'll keep tinkering, it was a fun alternative to illustrator.


Whats the difference between Clo3d and MD? Seems identical.

From their FAQ:

We offer two different platforms for two different industries: CLO3D for the apparel industry and Marvelous Designer (MD) for the computer graphics, animation, and gaming industries. While if may seem similar, CLO3D is equipped with features essential to the fashion industry and to allow for accurate, on-spec, true-to-life garment simulation - such as the ability to import DXF-AAMA pattern files and to customize avatar body specs.


They also mention you can make patterns somewhere in the faq, hard for me to tell, beyond it looks like a cool clothes design software. I'll ask them for an evaluation copy, I have a skirt project I've been wanting to do, but don't hold your breadth : )

Marvelous is very advanced and great for fashion visualization.
For simpler textile simulations however, you can use 3DS Max' Cloth modifier for draping functions so it allows designers to do curtains, table cloths, vehicle reveals etc. Count on 4-8 hours CPU time per simulation.
