  • Publication number: 20200233994
    Abstract: The virtual shape of knit product comprising plural parts and mutually divided in the knit data is simulated. The connection information regarding how said parts are mutually connected is obtained based upon the knit data or the pattern data of the knit product, and the plural parts are mutually based upon the obtained connection information. The virtual shape of the knit product is deformed by deforming the plural parts according to the forces acting on the plural parts. At least one of the plural parts is stretched automatically or according to at least an instruction by a user, and then, the virtual shape of the knit product is re-deformed to a natural shape by re-deforming the plural parts according to the forces acting on the plural parts. Then, stitches are allocated within the plural parts, and the allocation of the stitches is smoothed within the plural parts.
