Crea Solution and Browzwear have recently announced the new 2021.1 release of the 3D CAD software Lotta and VStitcher. The new version sees significant improvements to Browzwear’s 3D visualization and dynamic animation capabilities in order to give an increasingly realistic representation of garments to apparel professionals and companies.
The main new features of the software include:
Oliver, the New Male True-to-Life Avatar
The 2021.1 update introduces Oliver, a new ultra-realistic parametric avatar whose measurements can be adjusted as and when needed. By working with parametric avatars, users can enjoy enhanced visuals with each garment simulation.
New Dart Tool
This new tool stands out from others in the industry because it is a live object that provides the flexibility to continuously develop and adjust patterns. With this new powerful tool, users can perform actions on the dart that mimic real-life pattern-making techniques, including rotating, splitting darts into multiple darts, and curving the darts.
The Walk Tool & animation
The new feature is the digital version of a frequently used real-world pattern making technique. This feature allows users to inspect and adjust their pattern pieces in the 2D window in real-time while walking to assure they are designed correctly to avoid any errors further down the line. This includes functions such as sliding, inserting notches, mirroring, cloning, snapping, and more.
The new workspace gives all VStitcher and Lotta users the ability to bring their avatars to life and create engaging animations without needing any prior skills. The workspace offers capabilities such as slow motion, importing animation sequences, animated camera presets, and export formats such as obj+MDD, fbx+mc, and Alembic.
