How to Use 3D Fashion Design Software for Fashion and Textile Design

The world of fashion is a constantly evolving one and even as new trends come and go within the fashion industry, there are also new trends that emerged in the aspect of design and textile creation that seek to make designs easier to render and alter for the designer and also make the process of getting clothes faster and easier for the consumers themselves.

One of these is the use of 3D fashion designer software for the processes of fashion and textile design. This is considered the future of fashion design itself, as it brings together the creativity of the arts as well, as the versatility and ease of use of computer software. Far from a fleeting trend, it is in the best interest of any fashion designer to get involved in 3D fashion design software, as it will help take their designs to the next level and make the process of creating their clothes easier. Here are some of the ways fashion designers can benefit from the use of 3D fashion design software:

Get a Realistic Rendering of the Clothes

Typically, when a designer renders their designs on paper and draws them by hand, they only have a wild guess of how the clothes will hang on an individual, but with the use of 3D fashion design software, they will be able to get an immediate rendering on how the clothes will hang on a typical human form, which includes the creases folds and cuts across the patters. When you get your fashion designer software, make sure to select this option to get a view of how your clothes will look on the human body from various angles and this might inspire you to make some changes to your designs.

Test with Different Fabrics

Naturally, different fabrics will hang differently and look different depending on their make. After downloading your fashion designer software, design with many different fabrics and compare how each one looks and feel free to combine different fabrics on a single design to get the desired result. This can include making certain parts of the item of clothing have a different fabric than another, testing with different looks until you are satisfied and ready to release the design.

Test with Different Looks

After you have decided on what fabric you would like to use, feel free to adjust the virtual design for different cuts, looks embellishments, patterns, colors, and so on, and of course, view the design from different angles to make sure it is what you want. This process will save a lot of time, when compared to drawing different possible designs or making mock designs, which can take hours. This process allows you to complete it within minutes. Should you be satisfied with the final product, the design can be ready to be released into the market almost instantly.


3D designer software is undoubtedly beneficial for any designer, as it allows the very quick and efficient and easy rendering of designs, which will help you not only create with more ease, but will also help you keep up with the fast-paced world of fashion by getting your designs ready for the market in record time.
