View Full Version : Bullet cloth question

I'm trying to drape a piece of cloth over a box shape.

I get it to work ok but the problem I have is where it drapes over the edge of the box, it is looking like a piece of thick paper, it curves over the edge.

I just can't seem to find a setting that will minimise this effect.

I don't expect a sharp crease but at present it just looks silly. :mad:

Does anyone know what settings I should be adjusting?

Managed to solve the problem with a weight map

Just curious, what specifically did you do with the weight map to solve your problem?

Well without getting into a tutorial, I created a weight map for my tablecloth, and set it up as shown below


Then set Mesh Filter, in the Bullet panel, to the tablecloth weight map.


And that's about it, then saved out transformed and then in modeller, tweaked the tablecloth edges that lined up with the box edges and finally
used the Airbrush tool to set the subpatch weight to make the edges a bit sharper.

This is what I ended up with:-
