Re: can someone help me with this roll thingy?

Here are some pattern references that may help: http://www.studiofaro.com/well-suited/pattern-insights-jersey-twist-patterns?page=2 Essentially, the pattern pieces are connected, and actually twisted where they are joined, before the pattern's seams are sewn. As Lori said, in MD, if you twist too ti...

Re: how do I import a custom zipper puller from Illustrator?

You have a reply in the main MD site forum. Essentially you will need to make a transparency map, since you didn't want to do a 3d mesh object.

Re: can someone help me with this border wave?

There are two methods you can use, depending on your comfort level. http://www.rosemaryr.com/Lori'sMDSite/Trim.jpg The first is to use a transparency map. For this you will need to create a B+W image that matches what you want the trim to look like. Like this: http://www.rosemaryr.com/Lori'sMDSite/T...

Re: the belt is going inside of cloth when running

There could be a couple of reasons. Cloth mesh intersections usually happen when you have too many factors in play. The program is trying to solve too many issues at once, and some things fall through the cracks. So, you need to plan a way to reduce those opposing forces. My first thought was: that ...

Re: Garments rising at the front.

Most patterns you find, whether in commercially sold packets, or online, tend to be generalized. They are made for some 'ideal' figure. Mass produced items, like Tshirts, tend to be cut with more cloth or made of a more forgiving fabric, etc. You mention that the back part of your shirts seem longer...

Re: Garments rising at the front.

It is simply that the front of a body has a longer length than the back, just because of the upper torso (male or female) which juts out a bit more than the shoulder blades. (Look at your own side view image: drop a line from the shoulders down to the hips, then trace the front and back silhouette o...

Re: i'm a beginner in making cloth,can someone help me with this dress?

There is also a slight indication of a pieced section at the front of the skirt, looks like an extra piece of fabric added to increase the fullness. There is a slight mismatch in the pattern just below the waist. This is probably a godet style inset with a curved seam there.

Re: questions to sewing, avatar etc

For the flat bottom issue, position your bottom pieces where you want them, then use the Freeze option to have them stay there. The other pieces can be sewn to them, and the bottom pieces won't move, while the upper piece will simulate into position.

Re: questions to sewing, avatar etc

For the first images, with the box for an avatar, the reason that the cloth is moving inside the box, is that your normals are reversed on the avatar. We can tell this because it is so dark. That is MD's way of indicating the 'wrong' side of a cloth or object. MD cloth is programmed to stay on the '...

Re: Need help - new to MD

Check the normals on your 'collider' objects. The behavior shown in your pic indicates that the cloth is moving into them. It does this because MD cloth is programmed to be on the 'outside' of an object **as defined by the normals**. If your normals are reversed (and pointing to the interior) then t...
