Specialist software provider Browzwear Solutions has released the latest version of its virtual modelling and design product – Vstitcher – and its Lotta 3D design software.
According to Browzwear, highlights of the release of VStitcher 7.9 and Lotta 3.9, which do not require a C2V licensing update, include improved accuracy of stitch and workmanship, with more realistic and responsive edges creating a better overall effect on the garment look and simulation. This improvement perfects edge details in highly stretched garments like swimwear and underwear, and mimics complex edges of combined hems including elastics, for true-to-life overall garment behaviour.
In addition, adjustments such as pinching pants from multiple points, rotating sleeves, or flattening ruched fabric can now easily be made or by using the persistent pinch tool to lock areas during simulation.
Multi-layering is also easier by enabling the user to individually style each layer, hide or reorder layers, control gravity, temporarily disable stitches, and more for the most attractive display.
Meanwhile, buttons, trims, embellishments or any other internal element or line can now be cloned while a relax and stretch option allows the user to set edge shrinkage in terms of the relaxed and stretched target values or percentages.
According to a Browzwear blog, both Vstitcher and Lotta now also include a flexible template for displaying designed garments in a folded form.
