Re: Patterns from UV Maps

Hi, There isn't anything wrong with MD, I've been doing quite a bit of testing lately bringing in OBJ files created out of Blender. There must be something else going on. I've attached a file for you to test. I had to zip it to include in the posting here. Just unzip the file and use FrontBodiceBlen...

Re: Having a hard time creating a box pleat pocket...

I did a pair of cargo pants in a video (almost 5 years ago, OMG). There are pockets that are very similar to what you are trying to do. Watch the video at about 31:20 to hear the description of what the pattern looks like. Then skip to 32:59 and I explain how you use internal lines with fold angles ...

I'm sorry, I have no idea what is happening. Perhaps a couple screen shots might be helpful.

Re: Clothes moving back as I try to move them down?

You need to be a little more specific. Are you trying to move the clothing while the simulation is running or just using the Gizmo tool?

Re: Manually scroll around the 2D Pattern Window?

On the main menu select Settings > User Settings and then View Controls. This will tell you what is set for Pan, Zoom and Rotate. You can Pan and Zoom in the 2D window. The 3D window can Pan, Zoom and Rotate.

Re: Cloth types

Marcus, Even being an experienced person who sews, the names given in MD are still subjective. You aren't losing much by not being familiar with them. The most useful way to learn which-fabric-does-what is to look at the properties of the fabric. I'll take a look at leather, satin and knit. These ar...

Re: UV Tool

As a beginner, there is no need to worry about the UV tool for now. It is used for laying out the patterns for export to other 3D graphics programs, like Blender, 3DS or Maya. If you are new to 3D graphics, as well as MD, UVs are a rather advanced topic that can be confusing. Give yourself a little ...
