Smart Zippers Overview

You can add zippers in VStitcher as a single smart object consisting of a number of default parts, giving you greater flexibility and ease of use in adding zippers to your garments.

Zipper Modes

VStitcher and Lotta support the following zipper modes:

  • One line zipper - both sides of the zipper are assigned to one edge or internal line

  • Two line zipper - each side of the zipper is assigned to a separate edge or internal line

The one line zipper mode is the default that is applied when adding a zipper. This zipper needs only one line or edge. It remains closed and uses the closed teeth building block. You can convert a one line zipper to a two line zipper by selecting another line or edge.

The two line zipper can be zipped and unzipped. You can convert a two line zipper to a one line zipper by disconnecting the second line or edge.
