This course is for the CLO user that wants to utilize all the tools available within CLO 3D, also for an apparel designer from a traditional school that wants to elevate their pattern drafting skills to 3D simulations.
It is designed for apparel designers working with other softwares such as Illustrator and Gerber that want to compliment their skills with CLO 3D. It is an introduction to the pattern grading software within CLO 3D and the auto grading to fit an adjusted avatar once the clothing is created.
This course allows one to get even more creative in production with tools such as modules.

How will you learn?

The course is self-paced and includes a pre-assessment test, modules of interactive instruction based on videos, animations, practical exercises, discussion questions and knowledge assessments.
It ends with a post-assessment test and project where learners submit their own project using the techniques learned in the course. An in-course glossary at the learner's fingertips facilitates the understanding of technical terms.

All participants who successfully complete the course will receive a MOTIF Certificate of Completion.
