Re: Red internal line dots

For question about making the skirt 'puffy': do the same as you did for the ruffles. You have to sew a longer length of cloth onto a shorter length. In this case, you need to make the waistband seam of the skirt longer. If you are using a straight rectangle for the skirt panels, then just make it lo...

Re: layer collision problem

If you are going to be sewing it down onto a previous garment, don't use the Layer settings. That is meant for keeping separate garments in their relative positions, like pants over shirts, or a jacket over both pants and shirt. Instead, use right-click on the pattern piece in the 3D window, and fro...

Re: I Need Help with Pattern/Physics For This Dress

You won't need internal lines, but you will have to do some adjustments. First, pick a soft fabric preset for the front pattern. You want something that will drape naturally. Then play a bit with the Details of the fabric Properties, to improve the drape. Second, turn the Grainline 45 degrees. This ...

Re: Cloth gets sucked by avatar in simulation

How was the toy? jar? created? Was two or three separate shapes just linked together, or is it a lofted curve? If parts of it's surface go to the interior of the whole shape, then the cloth may try to follow that surface, inwards. Other than that, I would suggest that you increase the time allotted ...

Re: Cloth gets sucked by avatar in simulation

It's a bit hard to tell what is happening from the zoomed-in view. Could you post a full view of the avatar and cloth object, so we can see more?

Re: Frustrating roll

You want the upper torso and hips to guide the amount of width you need on the pattern. Use the measurement tools on your avatar to determine this. Second, you will li...

Re: Creating a foil sachet

I would use the Cut&Sew option on the internal lines, and only apply pressure to the inner panels, leaving the outside pattern pieces un-inflated.
