Dress Design in curvy using lofts

made with curvy lofts
render bryce

lofts make very quick clothing and are a bit more like cutting out cloth
curves can be moved, rotated,resized and reshaped
some curvy functions will remove the control curves so save often to different named files


note :- you may come across a little bug in curvy when using "REDRAW AS "
if the line is straight and its endpoints are on the same y co-ordinate it may not respond to the command.
if you use the soft move tool to slightly distort the line it will then respond.

feature request:- it would be nice to be able to copy curves between lofts so to be able to more easily butt two lofts together :)

big note: you can work with normal curvy lathes instead of lofts if you switch off end caps and switch on double sided
there are lots of ways to use curvy :D

That is some smart loft usage.

Copying a curve onto the clipboard and then being able to paste it into a different object, or perhaps overwrite an existing curve in a different object would be very handy - and perhaps might open the way to other interesting techniques such as drawing a curve on the surface of an object and then using that curve to make a loft/line that matches the original shape.

Hi Simon
copying and pasting curves between objects would open up all sorts of possibilities including
importing very precise lines from a simple drawing app. Maybe even a little child window workshop ?

Hi,
I am new here from California and I am trying to make an A-line dress and your beginner guide really helped me. I want to know if I want to give more flow to the skirt what should i do? Take large fabric?

Once you have made the loft skirt, you can further shape the model using the normal warp/sculpt tools, this way you can bend and sweep the skirt to make the shape more natural.
