This intermediate course goes beyond CLO 3D fundamentals and provides the tools of production including print layouts, colourways and comments, reviews pattern making and explores advanced pattern manipulation and shaping. Learners will explore new techniques related to production in CLO 3D. With this course, users can take CLO to the next level of production and realistic design concluding with a runway animation.
How will you learn?The course includes video demonstrations of the tools and work along the modules and topics to compliment your learning. The course is self-paced and includes a pre-assessment test, modules of interactive instructions based on videos, animations, practical exercises, discussion questions and knowledge assessments. By the end of the course, learners will have a post-assessment project where they will submit homework using the techniques learned in the course.
All participants who successfully complete the course will receive a MOTIF Certificate of Completion.

Roz McNulty has been creating clothing on computers since 1983. She has experience with fashion design, pattern drafting, manufacturing, also with VR and AR. At the Fashion Innovation Centre, Roz works with apparel industry 3D software and mixed reality to create clothing assets such as historical clothing exhibitions, interactive AR runway and virtual change rooms. She has been in clothing construction and manual pattern making for 30 years. Roz spoke at the Electronic Visualization and Arts conference 2019 about the importance of 3D archiving for costume using 3D apparel software. A virtual museum is one of her dream. Roz can be called as a ‘Monocolist’ as she worked with 3D scanning software developed by Steampunk Digital.
She has always seen the future of clothing and computers starting with when she first starts illustrating clothing over 30 years ago. According to her, the future is even more fascinating now with the use of Mixed Reality to show off clothing before it is made. To both the manufacturer and its team and the customer.
The Fashion Innovation Centre teaches 3D Clothing Pattern Design. FIC provides talent and resources for the apparel industry, online 3D retail and museum archiving. The vision of the Fashion Innovation Centre is to creating talent to support the future of 3D design sampling, retail marketing, web assets and archiving of apparel.
