Description

3D virtual garment simulation software packages offer various fabric alternatives in their fabric libraries. However, these libraries are limited in terms of providing their users with particular fabric compositions, structures, and drape properties. When a specific fabric needs to be used for a garment simulation to understand how the end-product would look like, individual fabric mechanical properties must be entered into the software. For this purpose, usually fabric mechanical values measured by either KES or FAST systems are used. Although these systems provide precise measurements, they are very expensive to obtain. Our research questions emerged from the need to use alternative fabric testing devices to generate outputs to be used in 3D garment simulation software packages. The purpose of this study was to collect preliminary data to investigate if traditional textile testing equipment can be used instead of KES or FAST systems to create garment simulations in Optitex PDS 15.

Creating garment simulations: Effectiveness of traditional textile testing equipment versus KES and FAST Systems
