Shima Seiki: Knitwear simulation method, apparatus for the method, and storage medium

Applicant:           SHIMA SEIKI MFG [JP]; YAMAMOTO SHINJI [JP]

Inventor:             YAMAMOTO SHINJI [JP]

Abstract of WO 2008152931  (A1) Knitting data is changed into 3D-filament data expressing the positions of stitches, the connecting relations between the stitches and the kinds of the stitches, so that the virtual wearing is made on a human body model or a fabric. Layers of a knitwear are formed by setting a view point and a light source, by converting the stitches in the filament data into a 2D-stitch image, as viewed from a view point, with fluff, by overlapping the stitch images and by adding coordinates of an opacity and a depth direction.A ray tracing is performed in the layers of the knitwear, and average shadows by the knitwear are applied to the layers of the human body model or the fabric so that they are synthesized to a display image.; The simulation image, which expresses the thread body and the fluff of the knitwear and which expresses the shadows of the knitwear on the human body model, can be created in a high quality for a short time period.
