By 3DKiwiThis is a new version of the "Introduction to Modelling Clothes" tutorial. This new extended version covers the same content as the original tutorial but I spend a lot longer on the modelling tools. The tutorial use the Clothes modelling tutorial from the Quickstart manual from versions 9, 10 and 11 but rather than just finishing the T-shirt the tutorial shows how to model the T-shirt.
Covered in the tutorial:
Modelling using a Construction plane
Create polygon tool
Stitch and Sew tool. The video includes a mini tutorial on using the Stitch and Sew tool
Cloth tag, Cloth Collider tag and using the Cloth engine
Duration: 31 minutes
Although recorded in R11.5 users of newer versions should be able to follow along.
