Ready-to-texture: 2020 Fashion and Apparel Parametric Collection
Designing remotely is a necessity today, raising the need for realistic digital content. Sure, there is the staunch technique of the digitization of the existing, where designers take samples, scan, and process them. But the diversity of methods will help leverage a full toolbox and visualize a designer’s intention in a photorealistic way.
This is why we came up with the 20/21 collection, dedicated to fashion design, now available on Substance 3D Assets.
These 100+ new assets complement the palette of 400 digital fabrics already available in the online library. Made up of more than 90 procedural fabrics and 20 print-execution decals, this selection multiplies the creative possibilities tenfold.
- Design your textiles from the main structures used in the industry.
- Detail garments in 3D by locally applying prints, seams, zippers, and embroideries.
Extrusion and shading effects are no longer enough! Drag and drop your artwork into the embroidery offset to see it turn into a patch that visually simulates the orientation of the threads and contour stitching.
Simple, brocade, looped embroideries, and even sequins will give a good idea of the final result even before starting your multi-headed embroidery machine.
Just like every procedural decal, each Substance file acts as a conversion filter, which turns your image input into a blazon with the desired effect. All you have to do is position it and tweak the colors. It works on a wide scale range, for tiny embroidered names on a golf shirt, to bold military-like badges, or even topstitched patterns covering entire pieces of fabric.
These materials are the perfect opportunity to create your digital IP. You can build up on these base weaves, to generate thousands of possible designs, and your own private library of recipes. Use the existing .SBS files — you can even extract parts of them — as building blocks for new weaves, new styles, or even impossible fabrics of the future!
