At the Panel sub-object level, you can select one panel (cloth section) at a time and change its cloth properties.

A panel, which must be created by the Garment Maker modifier, is a closed spline that is not enclosed by another spline. If a closed spline is enclosed by another spline, it forms a hole in the outer spline.

NoteTo be able to select a panel at this sub-object level, you must first use Object Properties to specify that the object is cloth. Also, to be able to change settings on this rollout, first turn on Object Properties Use Panel Properties.

Interface

Presets group

Presets

Sets the selected panel's properties parameters to the preset selected in the drop-down list. Any presets that are built into the system or that have been previously saved and loaded will show up here. Presets have the file name extension .sti.

Load

Load presets from a specified location on your hard drive. Click this button and navigate to the directory with your presets to load them into your Cloth Properties.

Save

Save your Cloth Properties parameters to a file to be loaded at a later time. By default, Cloth preset files are saved to the \cloth folder inside 3ds Max install directory.

[Panel properties]

These Properties controls are the same as those found in the Cloth Properties group of the Object Properties dialog for Cloth.

Keep Shape group

Keep Shape

When on, preserves the shape of the mesh based on the Bend % and Stretch % settings (see following). In a normal operation, when Cloth creates a simulation, it tries to "flatten out" the cloth.

Bend %

Modulates the target bend angles to a value between 0.0 and the angles defined by the target state. A negative value inverts the angles. Range=-100.0 to 100.0. Default=100.0.

Stretch %

Modulates the target stretch angles to a value between 0.0 and the angles defined by the target state. A negative value inverts the angles. Range=-100.0 to 100.0. Default=100.0.
