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 ...

Re: How Do I Keep a Portion of My Mesh Flat After Simulation

To clarify, when you say to assign a transparent texture, do you mean a transparent png image file? Also, sorry for all the questions I'm asking lately--I'm still learning. Also, also, I gave up on this project--it was so frustrating--but thanks to your advice, I think I could actually finish it. I...

Re: How Do I Keep a Portion of My Mesh Flat After Simulation

Here's the shot: It's a quick construction, so there are a few flaws in the design, but the concept should be clear. I made the straps a bit wider, so you can see the effect fully. The invisible panels help maintain the spacing of the visible straps, and help support the dress overall. If you are pl...

Re: How Do I Keep a Portion of My Mesh Flat After Simulation

Another problem you are having (judging by the top image) is your straps themselves.Do you see where they are flaring out at the ends? This means they are getting stretched by the pull of the overall garment, and in particular, the square back panel. For parallel straps like those, I would suggest t...

Re: Hello, doll pattern help please

And even if you do get a properly doll-shaped avatar, do be sure to scale it up inside MD: the cloth will drape better at a scale set for regular human measurements. Once you have the garment made, then scale it (or your pattern) down for export.
