This intermediate course goes beyond CLO 3D fundamentals and provides the tools for Production in CLO 3D. Learners will be able to use the different tools for garment manufacturing including print layouts, colorways and bill of materials. In order to create designs with greater accuracy, learners will explore the next level of pattern making through exact measurement tools as well as manipulation of darts and lines. Finally, how to show off garments in 3D with movement will be taught through new techniques related to creating realistic fabrics and final exports. With this course, users can take CLO to the next level of Production concluding with a CLO runway animation.
To make the most of this course, you need to have a licensed version of the CLO 3D software, ideally the latest version (version 6).
How will you learn?The course includes video demonstrations of the tools and work along the modules and topics to complement 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. It ends with a post-assessment test and project where learners submit their own design 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.

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.
