Vellum - what is the best way to enforce appearance of folds near seams? Jan. 26, 2019, 8:27 p.m.

In Vellum, what is the best way to enforce folds (blue strokes) near seam areas (red strokes)?
Should I use different point spacing along initial construction curves, or can I achieve it through using point attributes (which ones?) passed to vellum solver?

Okay, for the time being I worked around the issue by taking advantage of manual point selection done in appropriate order. However, it would still be better to use point groups, so this question remains open.

Vellum - garbled seam constraints in vellumdrape Jan. 26, 2019, 7:04 p.m.

Hi. I have a problem with tangled seam constraints in Vellum. I'm trying to attach a sleeve to a T-shirt. The shirt itself is a result of draping I've done earlier. The sleeve was initially a bent planar patch that I draped in such way that its top and bottom seams are now welded together forming a tube. I applied vellumpostprocess (to weld overlapping points) and clean (to remove all groups and attributes) on both meshes. Now I want to connect the T-shirt with a sleeve.

Point count of both seams is the same (28), but point order causes entanglement that cannot be resolved by tweaking Cycle dial or toggling Reverse flag. I tried sorting points of both meshes using all available algorithms in the Sort SOP, but the result was never perfect.

What else can I do to resolve this problem?
