I’ve had a look at marvelous designer but it seems to be for 3D gaming. You can’t print the patterns and to put in your own measurements seems to be complicated. (you have to create your own avatar with other softare and them import it NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED! )The say to use it’s sister program CLO 3D, but that seems to be for industrial pattern cutting etc not the home sewer.

Has anyone used the images from the screen and imported them to CAD programs with any sucess?

    Sorry have not used, but they have a forum, where you probably would get more answers to your questions,

    Heya, have you had any more success? I’m looking into getting this software. Luckily I know someone who’d build me a model, but curious about benefits for dressmaking, and practicalities.

    I don’t see any benefits for this software. I’ve e-mailed them to ask about being able to print their patterns in life size well see what they say.

    I have Marvelous Designer and it is a really cool software, but it is geared for the 3D market and not for creating “real life” garments (though many of us would like to use it that way). There is no easy method for getting a life size pattern from this software. You cannot export anything that a CAD program can use. So far, I have heard only of people making a screen capture of the pattern pieces and using a graphics program for printing them out at life size – not easy to get the scale right. It would be really nice if there were a mid level version of this program for home sewers, but currently the CLO3d version is the only version that has the ability to enter real measurements and print out life size patterns. This is a relatively new product though, so they may come up with a mid level version – especially if they think there is a market. One of the things you can do with this program, is use images of real pattern pieces as a template for creating a pattern in MD2. This will let you see what the pattern might look sewn up in a variety of fabric types and colors in real life. Getting models in the exact proportions to use to drape on, however, is not easy just yet and so creating for a specific real person is not very realistic.

    For self-designed and life size garment CAD from home, studio or otherwise you should try www.vetigraph.com they supply small production needs as well as factories and they will give you a free course when you buy anyway

    I was really keen on this software good thing I read this or I would have been in for a disappointment! I contacted CLO3D for a price and I will post my findings.

    i have been working with marvellous designer plus CLO3D. I like it because it renders very well and my designer would warm to that more. if any looking for the soft, here is my email : toprate.apps@gmail.com
