The course starts with the knitting techniques used for 3D knitwear production: course shaping, wale shaping, tubular knitting, changing yarn materials or structural parameters, combination of knits. Examples of 3D knitwear applications are also presented.
In this topic various programming techniques and its application in the 3D products creation with one of the most popular software Karl Mayer Stoll (Germany) are presented: manual shaping and sizing; shape editors, modules, pattern software intuitive futures, auto-create software, multicolor 3D patterning.
The topic covers the modern approaches for 3D pattern creation. The aim is to summarize the steps in the programming process of 3D patterns by presenting examples.
