⚡️ Improvements

  • Multiple folds in 3d

    • You can conduct ‘fold in 3d’ multiple times on a pattern
  • Change curve creation method

    • We benchmarked Adobe Illustrator.
    • The point on the curve will be created as a smooth point as a default.
    • When you click the point during curve creation, it will be changed into a non-smooth point. So, the former curve shape will not affect the next curve shape.
    • Undo action doesn't make curve drawing stop. You can draw curves continuously after undo
  • Distinguish simulation mode and design mode

    • You can check the current mode on the below.
  • Measure disconnected curves’ lengths using a measurement tool.

    • You can measure disconnected curve length like a sewing tool.
  • Remove history data on zls

    • Its file size is too big, and there is a chance of malfunction because it contains old history.
  • Add avatar assets

    • Woman’s shoes and hair are updated
    • Man’s shoes are updated
  • Change avatar accessories during the simulation

  • Avatar speed changes during the simulation

    • If the avatar animation starts too fast, you can set the animation speed as 0 and then speed up after draping
  • Show no avatar when switching avatar type for the first time

  • Allow to keep tacks when changing avatar

    • Yes ) Remove all tacks and change the avatar
    • No ) Keep the tacks and change the avatar
  • Import OBJ avatar’s texture

  • Importing custom OBJ assets

    • You can import OBJ assets as a folder
  • Allow Default Stitch duplication

  • Button alignment

    • Align buttons like buttonholes
  • Keep the original size of the artwork

    • The program will detect the original size of the artwork. So you don't need to drag when adding a new artwork.
    • The preview will show you the original size of the artwork.
  • Image capture as shown in 3d view

    • You can capture the pressure map and wireframe with 3D capture
  • Add simulation properties name

    • collision force/ collision relaxation
    • untangling force/ untangling relaxation
  • Jittering/Untangling/Layer improvement

  • Minor improvements

    • Update translation

    • Update EULA&OSS

    • Update the rozy file version

    • Update zv icon/splash/wizard

    • Add a link on the message dialogue "zw is already running"

    • Update copyright 2024

    • Widen snap range on 3D gizmo

    • Show pin/tack properties at the same time if both types are selected

    • Guideline snap

    • Shortcuts for message box

      e.g. Press Y → Yes/ Press N → No

    • Support to import the PAD DXF files

    • Make curves selected when creation done

    • Add some context menu

      • Surface(2D/3D) - Hold/Harden/Collision
      • Curve(2D) - Surface tool

🔄 Changes
