MODULE 1 • Introduction – What is 3D?

Step Description
1 3D CAD stands for 3-dimensional computer-aided design. It differs from 2D CAD in the sense that we will be working in 3 planes – the X, Y and Z plane. The Z plane allows us to work with depth, rather than creating flat images or sketches.
2 There are several software options to create 3D fashion, but we will be focusing on CLO3D. CLO3D is a garment simulator and pattern making software which utilizes scanned materials, virtual avatars, and a 3D space to create and visualize garments in digital form.
