Armorsmith Designer

Have you ever wanted to build a costume? Didn't know where to start?  Armorsmith is a tool for designing and constructing costumes. Armorsmith makes it easy. Easily create and customize an avatar and begin the process of attaching your 3d model costume parts. When you're ready, turn your 3d costume parts into patterns. Just print those patterns and get smithing in the medium of your choice!

The customizable avatar allows users to create a virtual representation of themselves with which they can attach their costume pieces to. This makes scaling parts so much easier, allowing the user to see exactly how the parts will fit before building.

Import all of your costume parts for a perfect fit. 

Snap the part to the Avatar and then simply translate, rotate, and scale your costume part to make sure your part is ready for construction

Take your 3d models and generate patterns to build your costumes out of paper, foam, fabric, or any material.

Load PDO files have the patterns ready for you to print and assemble. Just scale them to fit, and you're ready to build your costume!
