MATHEMATICAL MODELLING OF 3-D FLEXIBLE MATERIAL SURFACES TO AID DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE OF CLOTHING

Objective


Mathematical models have been produced from existing numerical representations of 3-dimensional curved surfaces to accurately visualise surfaces representing clothes worn by a model. These surfaces can then be developed into 2-dimensional pieces for pattern making. The challenge lies in taking into account the physical properties of the material when making the mathematical model of the surface including creases and folds at the elbow, knee, and so on. Modelling is carried out on 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional graphics workstations allowing deformations to be visualised and respecting the drape and cut of the clothing, the physical properties of the cloth and the posture of the model.
