Plush Toy Design Software

Craft & Design Yarncraft

Yuki Mori and Takeo Igarashi from The University of Tokyo have created this really cool tool for designing plush toy patterns. It looks very easy to learn and lets you model completely original toys, then gives you the 2D pattern from which to sew. Computer science just got cute. – [via] Link.

    The program was unusably buggy. After drawing the initial shape, weird geometry sprouted out of nowhere and expanded on both the pattern side and the design side. We tried it on 3 different computers.
    It looks awesome in the demo. I hope someone debugs it.
