Bed Duvet Cover
show user profile  mrgrotey
disclaimer: yes I've googled it and havent found what im looking for ;)

Hey lads and ladies,

I just thought I'd get your views on how to model a decent duvet cover. I'm not talking about a sheet, or a blanket, I'm talking about a nice thick puffy duvet cover like below (not bothered about the folded over part)

I know you can model a plane and let it drop onto a bed with a cloth sim but that wont make it puffy.

How would you go about this?

You can inflate things with the cloth mod. this gives things internal pressure. Get it and the sheet right (two layers), and you should get the puffiness you need.

I wonder if that would be a job for the new cloth inflatable features.
You would need a newer version of max though.

Damn you Nik Clark!

Is the inflate thing a new feature? i.e. newer than max 2009? Not heard of that function before...

i've used the free trial version of marvelous designer for stuff like this and its great - but im guessing that's what nik's saying you can do with the cloth mod in max too.

To answer your last question: Yes, you need a newer version than 2009 which I'm guessing you're not going to get so you need another solution. Maybe Marvelous Designer like weemink said?

That Nik, He make me laugh:)

I'd love to hear the answer to this one too Grotey. I've played with this problem numerous times and couldn't get it to work without asking a mate if I could use his later version of max with the inflate feature in cloth. Even then, I wasn't able to find that fine balance between super-inflated beachball and flat pancake.

you should just use a box and cloth sim then use poly paint tools or take it into z brush and brush a few small features.. or you could just add a a displacement mod with standard noise after the sim(probably what i would do).

This calls for a KB blowjob...

And of course, something later than Max 2009 unfortunately.

edit: Or, cloth sim for basic shape and zbrush/mudbox/sculpting to add depth and realism - would be time consuming though.
