Import Illustrator files?

Ask about specific settings, like fabric properties, or the difference between the sewing tools. These would be things you would expect to see in a software manual.

Import Illustrator files?

Post by luca1905 » Sun Aug 21, 2016 3:51 pm

Hello all together,
is there any way to import Adobe Illustrator Files into the MD? I´m very comfortable with drawing in illustrator. It would be cool to make my patterns in Illustrator and import them into marvelous designer to do the rest of the stitching pleats etc.

Unfortunately, no, not directly.
Your best solution, once you've made your drawing in Illustrator, is to convert it into a bitmap image, .png or .jpg are the best options.
Then use that image as a texture on an extra pattern piece, and trace over the image for your garment's pattern pieces.

You can try my hack if you like.

Basically save your .AI files as SVG and bring them into Blender. Then run the Blender script to transfer them to Marvelous Designer.
