Hi,

How do I set an initial state for a simulation. I have made a simulation and I would like the start of the simulation to be when the cloth has settled in place.

Cheers,

Hi, so you just run a simulation to the settled state you want.
Then you save the resulting cloth mesh and use that mesh as the cloth start mesh.

Your reference mesh needs to remain the same in both cases.
If you didn't set an explicit reference mesh, then the reference mesh is your original start mesh.

Cheers,
Admin

Ok, thanks for the reply. Yeah that’s how I have been doing it. Just thought there would be a more streamlined way of doing it. It’s all a bit cumbersome and non procedural.

feature request maybe?

cheers,
