Garment Tool

Garment Tool is Blender add-on (for Blender 3.6 and 4.x) designed to simplify process of making simulation ready cloth meshes inside Blender. Simulation meshes are generated from 2D Bezier curves, sewed together and then triangulated into final cloth mesh.

Features

  • ability to define sewing's between sewing patterns (2d Bezier curves), directly in 3d view-port,
  • ability to generate evenly triangulated mesh with adjustable resolution with generated vertex groups and modifiers
  • interaction with simulated cloth
  • support for cutting holes inside sewing patterns
  • Garments Library - save/load your sewing patterns from library. Few samples are included in GarmentsExampleLibrary.zip file.
  • helper tools for symmetrize, splitting, duplicating, flipping 2d curve sewing patterns.
  • Pocket tool for generating sewings from source patterns to target pattern
  • Bind Tool -> easy way of projecting 3d mesh, on surface of simulated cloth (useful for making attachments, bags, pockets, etc.)
  • saving baked simulation into shape-key

Business vs Individual license: if you are company with above 140k $ income please purchase Business version. Otherwise you can buy individual license. Both licenses (Studio and Standard) can be used commercially

Refunds - you can get refund for Garment Tool, if you request it - withing 2 weeks after purchase.


Limitations

  • Rarely but it happens that triangulation fails to find solution for given sewing pattern. Usually increasing triangulation resolution parameters fixes that.
  • Since blender 3.4 and up cloth pulling and pining wont work - due to bug in blender cloth sim (it is reported here ) . The cloth pulling was replaced with forcefield trick.

What you get:

  • Garment Tool addon for Blender 3.6 and 4.x
  • example garments library in GarmentsExampleLibrary.zip


Update 1.0.2 (8.03.2019):

  • Fix low max_segment value - would not let user define segments above 13. Affected duplicate sewed, and other tools)
  • Improved triangulation results on complex patterns
  • Duplicate sewed - add option instance vs copy.
  • Warning icon added next to garment resolution slider - if output garment poly-count may be high, generating mesh may be slow.

Update 1.0.4 (27.03.2019):

  • added auto-update feature, in addon preferences. When new release is out, you can use auto-update to automatically download and install new version.

Update 1.0.5 (30.04.2019):

  • Added Garment Library - gives you ability to save/load cloth sewing patterns (I uploaded sample presets to GarmentsExampleLibrary.zip file on gumroad)

  • Fixes to auto-update
  • Fixed symmetrize


Update 1.0.6 (23.05.2019):

  • Compatibility with latest blender builds (only use with blender builds after 22 may!)
  • This is big update (still WIP) with added support for cutting holes is sewing patterns

Update 1.0.7 (29.05.2019):

  • Version with support for cutting holes in sewing patterns added


Update 1.0.9 (30.06.2019):

  • fixed pins and pockets (were broken after added holes support),
  • added outline type of sewing pattern support (curves that wont be filled with mesh)
  • auto generate uv when creating cloth
  • new ability to disable sewing patterns
  • improved symmetrize and cut in half
  • bugfixes

Update 1.1.0 (28.07.2019):

  • added ability to pull cloth with your mouse
  • bug fix: skip uv if mesh has no faces

Update 1.2 (11.06.2020)

  • New Quad output method

  • fix Knife Pattern - adjacent verts handles were not aligned
  • bugfixes in small improvements
  • added support for sewings with pockets
  • fix Finalize Cloth giving bad collapsed result
