Plushie – freeware for making your own plush toys


plushie small Plushie   freeware for making your own plush toys

Plushie is an ‘interactive system that allows non-professional users to design their own original plush toys’. The free Java program is currently at a very early stage in development, but is nevertheless fascinating. I downloaded it to try and produce something and failed miserably, but the video shows what’s possible if you’re intelligent and diligent. [Via]

 Furthermore, an arbitrary 3D model cannot necessarily be realized as a real plush toy, and the final sewn result can be very different from the original 3D model. We avoid this mismatch by constructing appropriate 2D patterns and applying simple physical simulation to it on the fly during 3D modeling. In this way, the model on the screen is always a good approximation of the final sewn result, which makes the design process much more efficient. We use a sketching interface for 3D modeling and also provide various editing operations tailored for plush toy design.
