Re: Struggling with swimsuit

You will find that once you export, those seamlines will not show in any other program, when rendered in 3D mode. They are a purely MD visual effect for rendering only. Seamlines, unless given a fold setting, are actually flat, and the cloth butts up edge-to-edge, (what other programs would call a w...

Re: I have problem with environment light

Top main menu>Display>Environment>Show Light Controller (make sure there is a check mark there).
This will display a white ball (the light source) in the 3D window. Select that, and in the Property Editor there will be an Intensity setting. Adjust that number.

Re: Struggling with swimsuit

Since your intention is to take it to another program, there is an easy way. Don't rely just on the spaghetti straps for construction. Instead, create a separate fabric choice, (something you will NOT use in any other area of the swimsuit), and use it to fill the empty spaces defined by the straps. ...

Re: Why does the hoodie drawstrings "float"?

Are you using the default fabric for the drawstring? If so, then choose a preset which will give the fabric more bending ability....usually the preset names indicate just how soft/flexible it is........ or create your own by lowering the settings in the Property Editor. Work the sliders for Bending,...

Re: Reset 3D Arrangement issue

Reset does not mean "back to their position prior to the last simulation". It means reset to the first position they were created in, *unless* they had been assigned to one of the Arrangement points. From your first picture, it seems you are manually placing the pattern pieces, not using the AP syst...

Re: Problem with sewing

Check the scale on your imported avatar. Judging by both the sewing lines, and the size of the floor grid below the avatar, it is most likely that it is coming into MD at far too small a scale. Thus, the cloth, it's poly size and the sewing are too large in relative scale to it. A normal MD default ...

Re: New to making clothes for SL, having a problem with spikes in the fabric?

Are you using a custom, imported avatar? If so, I would check the scale of the avatar. The clue lies in the spacing of those blue points (pressure point indicators). They say that the cloth mesh is very, very coarse for the scale of the avatar, which implies that the imported avatar is too small. A ...

Re: Bounding Volumes & Arrangement Points on Custom Avatar

I'm trying to make a sleeve that is much longer than the arm (i.e. the end will eventually have to be pulled back to the wrist). To facilitate this, I've tried both extending an existing arm bounding volume on a default avatar, and also tried adding a new, long bounding volume. In both cases, when ...
