Stitching Overview

Virtual stitching in VStitcher involves stitching together a combination of piece edges, internal edges, or points, to simulate physical stitching on garments. Stitching in the 2D and 3D window happens simultaneously, so stitching in the 2D window displays instantly in the 3D window (prepare mode) and the other way around.

As it is easier to show the basics of stitching in the 2D window, the Help content about stitching focuses on working there. For information about stitching in the 3D window, refer to 3D Stitching.

Stitch Types

The following table shows the available stitch types and how you can use them in VStitcher.
