prototype 1 by hoppip prototype 1 by hoppip
3ds max is okay for making patterns but you usually end up with a lot of pieces

prototype #1 had about 43 pieces I think

and that's more than four tens

If you still have this file, would there be any chance you would be willing to send it to me or would I have to start from scratch on my own? I have the same program and am interested in making pony plushies and want something to start from

modeling programs are a terrible way to make a pattern, I've discovered :B

better way is to just make a model out of newspaper and masking tape, draw some seams on it, then cut along them until you get make it flat

I really don't think I'd be any good at that, hence trying to do something this way instead ><

for comparison, this pattern had 43 pieces but my current one only has about 15 :slow:

Maybe it really isn't that great an idea then. I'll try the other way, any tips?

not really, just make it out of newspaper and masking tape, draw seams on it, cut along them until it's flat, then trace them onto nicer paper

create a prototype from that, then see what went wrong and fix up your pattern

rinse and repeat until you're done :nod:

I had never thought of this! Definitely a good idea. Sounds tricky to get it just right though. Do you unwrap it in a certain way and use the UVW map as a pattern?

kinda, though I've found that using a model made out of newspaper and masking tape works a lot better, since modeling programs aren't really made for things that bend and stretch like fabric does
