The authors have already proposed a cloth design system that provides intuitive operations, e.g., sewing, cutting and fitting a cloth in a virtual 3D space through direct manipulations using a force-feedback device, phantom. However, a phantom device is very expensive and it is difficult for the end user to buy and use it. Also, many users are familiar with the use of a mouse device rather than that of a phantom device. So, the authors extended their cloth design system to support a standard mouse device besides a phantom device. They also evaluated the usefulness of their cloth design system by asking some subjects to try to practically perform several operations using a Phantom device and a mouse device. Then it is found that even using a mouse device, their cloth design system is practically useful. This paper shows evaluation results and discusses about them, and clarifies the usefulness of the cloth design system that only supports a mouse device.
